Advanced Statistical Analysis Using IBM SPSS Statistics (V26)
This course provides an application-oriented introduction to advanced statistical methods available in IBM SPSS Statistics. Students will review a variety of advanced statistical techniques and discuss situations in which each technique would be used, the assumptions made by each method, how to set up the analysis, and how to interpret the results. This includes a broad range of techniques for predicting variables, as well as methods to cluster variables and cases.
IBM SPS Statistics users who want to learn advanced statistical methods to be able to better answer research questions.
