Good news! You don’t have to know diddly-squat about statistics to be able to come up with well-calculated conclusions and display them in fancy graphs. All you need is
the SPSS software and a bunch of numbers. This book shows you how to type the numbers and produce brilliant statistics. It really is as simple as that.
In general terms, this book is for anyone new to SPSS. No prior knowledge of statistics or mathematics is needed or even expected. In specific terms, this book was written with two groups in mind: students who are not majoring in mathematics but are instructed to use SPSS and office workers who are instructed to use SPSS.
For most people generating statistics, the complexity of using the software becomes an obstacle. My purpose in writing this book is to show you how to move that obstacle out of the way with minimum effort.
