This manual aims to demystify statistics and data analysis by guiding you through the entire research process and helping you choose the right statistical technique for your project. From the formulation of research questions, to the design of the study and analysis of data, to reporting the results, the author discusses basic and advanced techniques. Each technique is clearly outlined, with step-by-step procedures for performing the analysis, a detailed guide to interpreting SPSS output and an example of how to present the results in a report. Illustrated with screen grabs, examples of output and tips, and supported by a website (www.openup.co.uk/spss) with sample data and guidelines on report writing, this manual can be used by students and researchers at any level alongside any major statistics textbook.
