Designed to help students analyze and interpret research data using IBM SPSS, this user-friendly book, written in easy-to-understand language, shows readers how to choose the appropriate statistic based on the design, and to interpret outputs appropriately. The authors prepare readers for all of the steps in the research process: design, entering and checking data, testing assumptions, assessing reliability and validity, computing descriptive and inferential parametric and nonparametric statistics, and writing about outputs. Dialog windows and SPSS syntax, along with the output, are provided. Three realistic data sets, available on the Internet, are used to solve the chapter problems. The new edition features: Updated to IBM SPSS version 20 but the book can also be used with older and newer versions of SPSS. A new chapter (7) including an introduction to Cronbach’s alpha and factor analysis. Updated Web Resources with PowerPoint slides, additional activities/suggestions, and the answers to even-numbered interpretation questions for the instructors, and chapter study guides and outlines and extra SPSS problems for the students. The web resource is located . Students, instructors, and individual purchasers can access the data files to accompany the book at . IBM SPSS for Introductory Statistics, Fifth Edition provides helpful teaching tools: All of the key IBM SPSS windows needed to perform the analyses. Complete outputs with call-out boxes to highlight key points. Flowcharts and tables to help select appropriate statistics and interpret effect sizes. Interpretation sections and questions help students better understand and interpret the output. Assignments organized the way students proceed when they conduct a research project. Examples of how to write about outputs and make tables in APA format. Helpful appendices on how to get started with SPSS and write research questions. An ideal supplement for courses in either statistics, research methods, or any course in which SPSS is used, such as in departments of psychology, education, and other social and health sciences. This book is also appreciated by researchers interested in using SPSS for their data analysis.

Designed to help readers analyze and interpret research data using IBM SPSS, this user-friendly book shows readers how to choose the appropriate statistic based on the design; perform intermediate statistics, including multivariate statistics; interpret output; and write about the results. The book reviews research designs and how to assess the accuracy and reliability of data; how to determine whether data meet the assumptions of statistical tests; how to calculate and interpret effect sizes for intermediate statistics, including odds ratios for logistic analysis; how to compute and interpret post-hoc power; and an overview of basic statistics for those who need a review. Unique chapters on multilevel linear modeling; multivariate analysis of variance (MANOVA); assessing reliability of data; multiple imputation; mediation, moderation, and canonical correlation; and factor analysis are provided. SPSS syntax with output is included for those who prefer this format. The new edition features: • IBM SPSS version 22; although the book can be used with most older and newer versions • New discusiion of intraclass correlations (Ch. 3) • Expanded discussion of effect sizes that includes confidence intervals of effect sizes (ch.5) • New information on part and partial correlations and how they are interpreted and a new discussion on backward elimination, another useful multiple regression method (Ch. 6) • New chapter on how to use a variable as a mediator or a moderator (ch. 7) • Revised chapter on multilevel and hierarchical linear modeling (ch. 12) • A new chapter (ch. 13) on multiple imputation that demonstrates how to deal with missing data • Updated web resources for instructors including PowerPoint slides and answers to interpretation questions and extra problems and for students, data sets, chapter outlines, and study guides. IBM SPSS for Intermediate Statistics, Fifth Edition provides helpful teaching tools: • all of the key SPSS windows needed to perform the analyses • outputs with call-out boxes to highlight key points • interpretation sections and questions to help students better understand and interpret the output • extra problems with realistic data sets for practice using intermediate statistics • Appendices on how to get started with SPSS, write research questions, and basic statistics. An ideal supplement for courses in either intermediate/advanced statistics or research methods taught in departments of psychology, education, and other social, behavioral, and health sciences. This book is also appreciated by researchers in these areas looking for a handy reference for SPSS

Data Science for Business and Decision Making covers both statistics and operations research while most competing textbooks focus on one or the other. As a result, the book more clearly defines the principles of business analytics for those who want to apply quantitative methods in their work. Its emphasis reflects the importance of regression, optimization and simulation for practitioners of business analytics. Each chapter uses a didactic format that is followed by exercises and answers. Freely-accessible datasets enable students and professionals to work with Excel, Stata Statistical Software®, and IBM SPSS Statistics Software®. Combines statistics and operations research modeling to teach the principles of business analytics Written for students who want to apply statistics, optimization and multivariate modeling to gain competitive advantages in business Shows how powerful software packages, such as SPSS and Stata, can create graphical and numerical outputs

Most books on discriminant analysis focus on statistical theory. But properly applied, discriminant analysis methods can be enormously useful in the interpretation of data. This book is the first ever to offer a complete introduction to discriminant analysis that focuses on applications. It provides numerous examples, explained in great detail, using current statistical discriminant analysis algorithms. It also develops several themes that will be useful to researchers and students regardless of the analytical methods they employ. They are the careful examination of data prior to final analysis; the application of critical judgment and common sense to all analyses and interpretations; and conducting multiple analyses as a matter of routine. To encourage and enable readers to conduct multiple analyses of their data, the accompanying diskette contains the four complete data sets and five special computer programs that are referred to repeatedly in the text and are the subjects of numerous exercise problems. This enables the reader to carry out package analyses on the data sets using a variety of procedural options both within and across computer packages. The term "discriminant analysis" means different things to different people. For statisticians and researchers in the physical sciences, it usually denotes the process through which group membership is predicted on the basis of multiple predictor variables. Behavioral scientists, on the other hand, often use discriminant analysis to describe group differences across multiple response variables. Though closely related, predictive discriminant analysis (PDA) and descriptive discriminant analysis (DDA) are used for different purposes and should be approached in different ways. To accentuate these differences and distinguish clearly between the two, Applied Discriminant Analysis presents these topics separately. For graduate students, this book will expand your background in multivariate data analysis methods and facilitate both the reading and the conducting of applied empirical research. It will also be of great use to experienced researchers who wish to enhance or update their quantitative background, and to methodologists who want to learn more about the details of applied discriminant data analysis, and some still unresolved problems, as well.
