Summary "Statistical Package for the Social Sciences is the most widely used statistical software for data analysis in sport and exercise science departments around the world. This book is the first guide to SPSS that employs examples directly from the field of sport and exercise." "Using a variety of screenshots, figures and tables, this book demonstrates how students can open data files from different programmes, transform existing variables, compute new variables, split or merge data files, and select specific cases, as well as how to create and edit a variety of different tables and charts. The book uses clear step-by-step demonstrations to show how students can carry out and report a number of statistical tests."
"Offering a comprehensive guide to SPSS functions, the book also explains the unavoidable jargon that come with some statistical tests, and gives examples of how different statistical tests can be incorporated in sport and exercise studies. This book will be of great interest to any student wanting to learn about the features of SPSS."--BOOK JACKET
