With SPSS, you can analyze data to make the right business decisions for your customer base. And by understanding how to use inferential statistics, you can draw accurate conclusions about a large group of people, based on research conducted on a sample of that population.
This easy-to-follow course, which contains illustrative examples throughout, will show you how to use tests to assess if the results of your research are statistically significant.
You'll be able to determine the appropriate statistical test to use for a particular data set, and you'll know how to understand, calculate, and interpret effect sizes and confidence intervals.

Contents and Overview
This course begins with a brief introduction before diving right into the One Sample t Test, Independent Samples t Test, and Dependent Samples t Test. You'll use these tests to analyze differences and similarities between sample groups in a population. This will help you determine if you need to change your business plan for certain markets of consumers.
Next, you'll tackle how to use ANOVA (Analysis of Variance), including Post-hoc Tests and Levene's Equal Variance Test. These tests will also help you determine what drives consumer decisions and behaviors between different groups.
When ready, you'll master correlation and regression, as well as the chi-square. As with all previous sections, you'll see illustrations of how to analyze a statistical test, and you'll access additional examples for more practice.
Finally, you'll learn about data management in SPSS, including sorting and adding variables.
By the end of this course, you'll be substantially more confident in both IBM SPSS and statistics. You'll know how to use data to come to the right conclusions about your market.
By understanding how to use inferential statistics, you'll be able to identify consumer needs and come up with products and/or services that will address those needs effectively.
