This course provides an application-oriented introduction to the statistical component of IBM SPSS Statistics.

In this course, 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.

Students Will Learn:

- Introduction to statistical analysis

- Describing individual variables

- Testing hypotheses

- Testing hypotheses on individual variables

- Testing on the relationship between categorical variables

- Testing on the difference between two group means

- Testing on differences between more than two group means

- Testing on the relationship between scale variables

- Predicting a scale variable: Regression

- Introduction to Bayesian statistics

- Overview of multivariate procedures

### Course Outline:

### Course Audience & Prerequisites:

**Audience:**

- IBM SPS Statistics users who want to familiarize themselves with the statistical capabilities of IBM SPSS Statistics Base.

- Anyone who wants to refresh their knowledge and statistical experience.

**Prerequisites:**

- Experience with IBM SPSS Statistics (version 18 or later), or

- Completion of the IBM SPSS Statistics Essentials course

### Course Offerings:

**Instructor Led In Classroom**

Newcomp can directly deliver IBM Business Analytics courses for Business Intelligence, Performance Management, and IBM Advanced Analytics through the use of in-class training facilities.

Currently, in-class courses are offered in Markham, Ottawa, Vancouver, Halifax, and Edmonton. Please note that classes can be added to new areas based on demand.

**Instructor Led Online**

Students receive the same quality as an in-class course, with a live instructor and the ability to participate in hands-on labs through real-life examples

ILOs help cut costs by reducing time and travel as they can be taken from home or the office and require only the use of a computer, high-speed wired internet and a headset.

**Self Paced**

Students can receive the same high-quality training, with the same courseware at their own speed and schedule with SPVC. Individuals with busy schedules can complete a course over a 30-day timeframe at a lower price than in-class or ILO courses. Please note that there is no live interaction with an instructor in this format.
