How to Use SPSS Syntax
An Overview of Common Commands

Additional resources:

March 2014 | 144 pages | SAGE Publications, Inc
Rather than focusing on SPSS menus and the graphic user interface, How to Use SPSS Syntax focuses on the syntax rules in SPSS, a more encompassing approach that allows readers to replicate statistical analyses by storing them in a file for future use. Practical, accessible, and highly focused, the book is brief, while still helping readers develop an in-depth understanding of the common syntax rules and commands. In every chapter, the authors clearly explain the syntax, show the main results, and include social science research examples and downloadable files that allow readers to follow along. Checks throughout the book help readers determine whether the syntax is used correctly.
