    Spss


    Hey,

    Just wondering if anyone has ever heard of this language or better yet used it? My fiance is having a hellova time getting something to work in it (some Psychology thing) and needs some help.

    Anyone out there?

    I used it a long time ago ( 3 years? ), but doubt I'll remember much. It's a propriety scripting language for the stats package SPSS, so shouldn't be too hard to hack something out in.

    Hey- thanks for the help. I have to figure out how to compare two samples through a chi-square analysis. I know that this test is under "non-parametric tests" on the menu, but I'm having trouble entering expected values. Everytime I enter them into the place it says to put the values, my output never inserts these values for the comparison. Hope this makes sense...all I'm trying to do is, I have a sample of people and am trying to make sure that my demographic variables match the population parameters close enough to run my study. I figured chi-square was the way to go since these are nominal variables. Thanks for any suggestions!
