This clear, student-friendly text offers a step-by-step introduction to the use of SPSS - easily the most widely used data analysis computer package in the social sciences. Supported by four datasets taken from the well-known British Social Attitudes Survey on the topics crime, health, politics and poverty, it offers an eminently practical approach to its subject, while still setting its explanation of statistical procedures within the wider social research context.
