SPSS – an acronym for "Statistical Package for the Social Sciences" – is a statistical analysis program that was first developed in 1968. SPSS Version 24 is installed on two computers at the South Campus (Main) Library and one computer at the North Campus Library; the software is available for use by UT Southwestern faculty, staff, and students.
SPSS can be utilized in two different ways:
- Use the menus in the graphical user interface to choose which statistical analyses to run (i.e., the point and click method).
- Write syntax or code in the syntax editor to customize the analyses.
Core Facilities' Research Software Core Operations offers information on campus site licenses and how to get some technical support.
The Library has access to many SPSS-related electronic books in the Library Catalog. A current list of these ebooks sorted by publication date, with the most recent at the top is available by clicking the following link:
