Conclusion

In this course you have been introduced to the software package SPSS and how to enter and manipulate some simple data. You should now have a good understanding of how to open SPSS, define variables, and enter a variety of data into the package.

A simple dataset was provided at the end of some of the third activities so that you can experiment with SPSS at a later date.
