Part I.      Introduction     SPSS Self-Tutorial II introduces you to the Explore, T-Test, Cross-tabulation, Correlation, Scatterplot and Regression statistical routines of the SPSS for Windows program. It also teaches you how to create new variables through the mathematical manipulation of existing variables, how to directly edit your data, and how to label and format your variables. This exercise is the second in a sequence of two SPSS for Windows exercises that are developed for EPFA 511. You must complete the first SPSS exercise, the "SPSS for Windows Self-Tutorial I", before you do this exercise , since this exercise is based on the assumption that you are already familiar with the basics of using the program, as covered in the "Self-Tutorial". All SPSS tutorials are designed to work in conjunction with the provided 29-variable, 577-case NYCSCH1.SAV data file, which is fully described in the first self-tutorial. The instructions given in this tutorial specify the tasks you must carry out.
