IBM SPSS (Statistical Package for the Social Sciences) is a data management and analysis product produced by IBM SPSS, Inc. in Chicago, Illinois. Among its features are modules for statistical data analysis, including descriptive statistics such as plots, frequencies, charts, and lists, as well as sophisticated inferential and multivariate statistical procedures like analysis of variance (ANOVA), factor analysis, cluster analysis, and categorical data analysis. SPSS is particularly well-suited to survey research, though by no means is it limited to just this topic of exploration.
SPSS is a modular product. That is, it requires the Base System module to run, but you may wish to use other modules to carry out specific analyses not supported by the Base product. The UT Austin license is for the Campus Edition Premium package, which includes SPSS Base, Advanced Models, Regression Models, Custom Tables, Forecasting, Categories, Data Preparation, Missing Values Analysis, Decision Trees, Decision Marketing, Complex Samples, Conjoint, Neural Networks, Bootstrapping, Exact Tests, Visualization Designer, and Sample Power. Analysis of Moment Structures (AMOS) is available for purchase for an additional annual fee, please contact SDS for more information.
