3 Basic spss skills SPSS - Statistical Package for the Social Sciences Definition:SPSS is a computer program used for survey authoring and deployment, data mining, text analytics, statistical analysis, and collaboration and deployment. (Wikipedia)
4 Basic spss skills – input data Go to Dr.Vincent’s website and download the data file:(Lecture notes – ISEM3120 – Data set 1 & Sample Questionnaire)Input DataOpen SPSS (close the excel file first)Open an existing data source – OKSelect your data file (in case of excel file, you need to change the “File of type” to Excel (*.xls,*.xlsx,*.xlsm))Another way to open data:File – Open – Data
5 Basic spss skills – Compute Mean & Standard Deviation Mean – the sum of the values divided by the number of values.Example: Compute the Mean of Factor 2 (Q14-Q18)1. Transform – Compute Variable2. Give a name for target variable: MN_F23. Function group: All4. Functions and special variables: Mean (double click)5. We get the formula of Mean in Numeric Expression: MEAN(?,?)6. Select Q14-Q18 to replace the “?” in the formula, Qs should be separated with a “,”7. Click OK8. Then we can see the mean of Factor2 (MN_F2) in the last column of the data file.
6 Basic spss skills – Compute Mean & Standard Deviation Standard Deviation – shows how much variation exists from the average (mean value).Example: Compute the Standard Deviation of Factor 2 (Q14-Q18)1. Transform – Compute Variable2. Give a name for target variable: SD_F23. Function group: All4. Functions and special variables: Sd (double click)5. We get the formula of Mean in Numeric Expression: SD(?,?)6. Select Q14-Q18 to replace the “?” in the formula, Qs should be separated with a “,”7. Click OK8. Then we can see the Standard Deviation of Factor2 (SD_F2) in the last column of the data file.
7 Basic spss skills – Compute Mean & Standard Deviation Another way to compute Mean & Std. DeviationAnalyze – Descriptive Statistics – FrequenciesSelect the variables you would like to compute, in this case, Q14 – Q18Click StatisticsCheck “Mean” and “Std. deviation”, and click ContinueClick OKThen you can see the result in the output window
8 Basic spss skills – Plot Pie CHART & HISTOGRAM Graphs – Legacy Dialogues – PieSelect “Summaries of groups of cases”, click DefineDrag the variable you want to plot pie chart into “Define slices by”Click OKThen you can see the pie chart in the output window
9 Basic spss skills – Plot Pie CHART & HISTOGRAM Graphs – Legacy Dialogues – HistogramSelect the variableCheck “display normal curve”Click OKThen you can see the histogram in the output window
10 Basic spss skills – Run a regression model Y = aX1 + bX2Y: Dependent variableX1, X2: Independent variablea, b: coefficient
11 Basic spss skills – Run a regression model Example:Run a regression modeling with Factor2 (F2), Factor4 (F4) and Overall User Satisfaction (OUS)Compute the Mean value of F2, F4, and OUS :MN_F2, MN_F4, MN_OUSAnalyze – Regression – LinearPut MN_OUS into DependentPut MN_F2 and MN_F4 into IndependentRead the result: R2, β, Sig.
12 Endnote skillsEndnote is a reference management software package, used to manage bibliographies and references when writing essays and articles.(Wikipedia)Main purpose for BBA project:Manage referenceCite reference
13 Endnote skills - install Download Endnote at:Install steps:1. Double Click file "ENX4Inst.exe"2. Click Next for all except it ask for product code.Select install Trial Version3. Let it do the install and click finish when it complete4. Go to Cracked folder and copy file "EndNote.exe"5. Open the folder in which you installed your Endnote. (Default folder should be: C:\Program Files\EndNote X4 )8. Right click and select "paste"9. You could use Endnote now
14 Endnote skills - install Get started with EndnoteCreate a new library (Can save it on your local disk or on your finger )A library is where you put a set of references.(e.g., You can create a library only for one paper)To open your library, find the folder where you save your library, then double click “My Endnote Library.enl”Create new group in your library:Right click “My Groups” – “Create Group”
15 Endnote skills – Create new reference Manually create referenceReference – New ReferenceInput the information of a article (i.e., author, year, title, journal … )Attach a file to a referenceEdit referenceDouble click a reference, orSelect a reference – right click – Edit ReferenceDelete referenceDrag the reference to Trash, orSelect a reference – right click – Move Reference To Trash
16 Endnote skills – Create new reference Import reference from Internet (e.g., Google Scholar)Open Google Scholar – Settings– Search Results– Bibliography manager– Show links to import citations into “Endnote”Example: Search articles about “e-commerce”Find the paper you wantClick “Import into Endnote” (Right down corner)Double click the downloaded file (.enw)Then you can see the new reference in Endnote
17 Endnote skills – Cite reference in a paper Connect Word with Endnote1. Open the folder where you install Endnote2. Endnote X4 - Product-Support – CWYW3. Find the following two files, and copyEndNote Cwyw.dll & EndNote Cwyw.dot4. Close Endnote and Open Word5. Office Button – Word Options – Trust Center– Trust Center Settings – Trusted Locations6. Double click “Word 2007 default location: StartUp”7. Copy the address“C:\Documents and Settings\...\Word\Startup\”
18 Endnote skills – Cite reference in a paper Connect Word with Endnote (2)8. Then close Word9. Past the address into one address box, then open the folder9. Past the two files you copied before into this folder10. Now open Word again, you will see Endnote X4 in the Menu
19 Endnote skills – Cite reference in a paper Cite While You WriteOpen your Endnote Library, and then open WordClick “Endnote X4” in the Menu of WordInsert Citation – Find CitationSearch the key word of the article you want to citeSelect the article, and click Insert
20 Endnote skills – Cite reference in a paper Select the reference styleSelect Endnote X4 in Word menu barClick the small arrow beside BibliographyThen you can choose reference style in the “With output” drop down menu
