What is SPSS?
SPSS(Statistical Package for the Social Sciences) is computer software that provides statistical analysis of data. It lets you have thorough data access and preparation, analytical reporting, graphics, and modeling. For most universities that have access to the software, it is purely for teaching, learning and for nonprofit research. So, the IBM SPSS License Agreement with universities does not cover computers owned by students. Therefore, students do not have access to it on their personal home computers. So, any student can buy an SPSS Statistics Grad Pack. It is the student edition of SPSS Statistics. Grad packs are inexpensive, single-user licenses that give students essential analytical tools to support their graduate and undergraduate studies.
Also, IBM gives a discount of more than 90% when you compare it the commercial subscription pricing. Besides, there are 3 editions of the latest release of the SPSS version 26 software. They are Base Edition, Standard Edition, and Premium Edition. The base edition features include descriptive statistics, correlation, crosstabs, frequencies, T-tests, and linear regression and clustering. Furthermore, the standard edition’s features are non-linear regression and mixed model analysis, and unit and multivariate techniques. While the Premium Edition offers all the features of SPSS Statistics 26. Therefore, getting the premium edition will enable you to carry out any type of analysis with the most sophisticated procedures available.
