We will cover the following topics that many students need when working with data from their agencies: Importing data from an Excel spreadsheet Recoding string variables into numerical ones Computing new variables Handling missing data Creating dummy variables Managing output files Selected univariate, bivariate and multivariate statistics (to be continued during the spring semester) This example is a fictitious dataset of an experimental study to measure the change in depression as a result of being assigned to an experimental treatment vs. treatment-as-usual. An excel spreadsheet and a completed SPSS data file of this example are available for you to practice with.
