SPSS Program File
The IBM SPSS (Statistical Package for the Social Sciences) is a program used to perform statistical analysis in the social sciences. Researchers and data analysts in sectors such as health, education, and marketing often make use of it. Files created in the SPSS program use the .SPS file format by default. The files include data sets and syntax that can be used to do statistical analyses using SPSS.
SPSS is an effective and user-friendly data analysis platform, offering a wide range of statistical procedures and options for customization. Some features that make it attractive are its easy navigation and the possibility to conduct various tests such as t-tests and ANOVA, as well as more complex techniques like factor analysis or structural equation modelling.
