SPSS is a powerful, feature-rich, statistical analysis program. It is used in a wide variety of disciplines. Its menu-driven system for selecting various statistical analyses and report writing make it a favourite for many introductory statistics courses. Students can focus on statistics instead of spending time writing program code.

On-line software activation required on all versions of SPSS. All versions of SPSS from the U of T Licensed Software Office must be renewed annually.
