    About this course

    LATEST: The course is updated to Jan 2017.

    === This is the FIRST COURSE ever on Udemy of SPSS SYNTAX programming ===

    Hi I am Doctor AnalytiX and I have spent many years on testing what really works in SPSS to get results in very short time, and now I want to share with you how to prepare data and how to automate tasks in a few simple steps.

    I have trained hundreds of people in these years and explained how to use SPSS syntax programming in several live training sessions and now you have the chance to follow me lifetime.

    This course will teach you how to use this 'behind the scene' language and other features for data management and manipulation, and for overall control of SPSS execution.

    There will be an "in-depth" details about the Syntax language: useful and relevant examples and exercises that shows how Syntax can make your analysis more efficient, more transparent and more easy.

    This awesome program includes:

    • great exercises with solutions end codes.
    • useful handouts.
    • handy checklists.
    • interesting projects.
    • exiting quizzes.

    Don't you think it possible to add percentage signs to your data? With SPSS syntax it will be very easy! Only a very limited number of people know this information. In only 3 hours you can learn how to automate repetitive tasks and how to perform additional options that are not available in the dialog(ue) boxes in SPSS. You can easily transform your analysis process in simple steps, record and reuse them whenever you need.

    Is my course better than another? I don't think so, but what I have learned after 15 years of training and statistic projects is how to save 4 hours a day making analysis and repetitive data management tasks thanks to SPSS, by using simple syntax commands.

    Creating a syntax script for SPSS automation is very easy, you don't need to know any special programming language or any complex tools, you just have to know SPSS.

    Given the obvious advantages of using a graphic user interface, you can wonder why anyone could want to program by using the syntax. Actually, there may be many situations in which the use of the syntax is preferable or even essential. Here are some examples in which the syntax is preferable to the "point-and-click" method:

    • If you have to create weekly or monthly reports: instead of recreating the commands, by using the menus each time, you can save them in a syntax file for later reuse.
    • If you have to use commands that are not available by using the dialog(ue)s: some subroutines for reading complex data structures, transformations like structures "do if" and "loop" and macros, you can get only by using the syntax.
    • If you have to create multiple tables or graphics: the syntax allows you to create them in a single step, whereas, by using the menu, you can only generate them one by one.
    • If every month you run the same SPSS commands, but the name of the database changes every time you run the analysis: you can change the file name using "Syntax Editor", and re-use the rest of the commands, rather than redefining from the beginning the file by using the menu every time.

    This course provides students with a greater understanding of a variety of programming techniques along with the procedure to use the most popular statistical software package, SPSS. The course will serve the students as a self-learning material of using SPSS for applying analysis and data management tasks, programmatically.

    The course has been written to provide solutions to the students in different disciplines. The course is intended for everybody works on data analysis, statistics, strategic decision-making process or quantitative methods taught in management and other disciplines like psychology,economics, education, nursing, medical, or other behavioral and social sciences. This course is also useful for IBM SPSS certification exams..
