# Statistical Analysis Using IBM SPSS Statistics (V26) SPVC (0G51BG-SPVC)

# Overview

**Contains:** PDF course guide, as well as a lab environment where students can work through demonstrations and exercises at their own pace.

This course provides an application-oriented introduction to the statistical component of IBM SPSS Statistics. Students will review several statistical techniques and discuss situations in which they would use each technique, how to set up the analysis, and how to interpret the results. This includes a broad range of techniques for exploring and summarizing data, as well as investigating and testing relationships. Students will gain an understanding of when and why to use these various techniques and how to apply them with confidence, interpret their output, and graphically display the results.
