Pros: I used this in my doctoral program extensively for a year. I think the best features of this program over others are the simple layout and design and the fact that the program just works like it should. There's nothing complicated in the program itself, and if your confused when entering data or any sort of statistical measurement you are testing, the book that comes with the software pretty much explains anything you need to know.

Overall: Easy to use, Cleanly designed statistical research tool. I used it primarily on MAC and had a few glitches here and there, but I think that had more to do with the age of the computer than the software itself.

I've used SPSS in my courses as a grad student and as an undergrad.

Pros: SPSS is very easy to use; I like that you can choose whether to use the point-and-click interface or code.

Cons: SPSS is not as powerful as other statistical analysis software, and it is more difficult to customize.

Pros: You don't need to know code in order to use the program. It's easy for me to teach students how to use it.

Cons: The graphs/tables notoriously are not great. They aren't in APA so you have to do a lot of work to get them there.

Overall: The ease with which I can analyze my data.

Pros: This software allows me to put together all kinds of analyses in a single stream and manipulate my data as needed

Cons: The software feels a bit outdated and "clunky". Unlike other programs, this program requires the user to be skilled in analytics and know exactly what they're looking for

Pros: I really like that you don't have to use the Syntax but you can click your way through the analysis. This makes it easy for anyone!

Cons: It's a bit pricey and still missing some key features like parallel analysis. Extensions are quite hard to find online and install

Pros: I'm not a code type of person so it was easy to learn the point and click software. And once I picked up on some coding I could make adjustments that way later on.

Cons: It can't do things like SEM. The output is not very pretty. It can be expensive if you don't have a license through a school or something.

Fantastically powerful for analysis, and is more user friendly for people new to analytic packages.

Pros: It is quick and powerful. The syntax is intuitive and a good way for beginners to learn. However, they also allow all of their commands to be run using drop down menus. This can help bridge the gap between new users and more technologically savvy users.

Cons: The one thing I do not like is this: if you edit your SPSS data file, save the file, and then decide to undo those changes you just made, the undo button does not work. Also, not everything is undo-able. It has lead to several cases of me redoing work because I saved before realizing an error and then being unable to "undo" it.

Pros: The tool is very easy to use and requires minimal SQL experience. The tool handles all amounts of data and does it quickly.

Cons: I'd say there is very little to dislike if anything - I am a happy customer. I've run into few problems, but YouTube tutorials explained everything.

Pros: Very powerful features, has about everything one could possibly want for data analysis. I am a Lecturer in Multivariate Data Analysis at the Sociology department of the Universidade Nova de Lisboa, and SPSS is a tool that I teach to grad and undergrad students, and that I use extensively on our Faculty projects and research nodes. Easy importing and exporting to other formats is a must.

Cons: Graphing presentations, although far better in recent releases of the software (I'm currently using ver. 24), are still somewhat lacking. Fortunately the export features for the data are solid, and I can use 3rd party software to good effect.

Overall: Solid software that handles most of my data analysis needs.

This sure is a good program!

Pros: It's layout makes sense, and there are so very many options!

Overall: SPSS makes so much sense to my brain. I used this program throughout graduate school, including use for data analysis while conducting original research. It is easy to use and works so well!

Recommendations to other buyers: I am not sure how it stands up to other programs, but my university exclusively used this one and for that I am grateful!

Comments: I have always worked with SPSS, which makes it software I can't live without. It has a lot of the basic functions you need for basic but also some advanced analyses. On the other hand some basic functions (I think of log regression as a basic for the researcher) are only available as extra (with extra costs). The syntax feels logical, and the graphs give you lots of freedom in making the graph as you want it. The only real downside of this software is the price, which will let you think about learning other research software instead of buying SPSS. I tried that option, but in the end I missed SPSS and now I'm happy to have it.

Pros: It has become the dominant product in Colleges and so learning to use it will be beneficial.

Cons: Ease of violating statistical assumptions.

Overall: When first developed, SPSS required the more sophisticated understanding of statistics and the assumptions which need to be satisfied when using a particular statistical procedure. Now, SPSS is extremely easy to use and allows you to run analyses whether or not statistical assumptions are met. As a result, individuals can run any analysis they want, look for the statistically significant relationship, and then 'create' a rationale for these findings. As a result, SPSS is fostering bad science. In addition, the product is extremely expensive.

Recommendations to other buyers: Other packages are available

Pros: Very good for market research.

Cons: Limited visuals of data.

Overall: In the past, I have used SPSS statistics for general analysis but have recently trialed both AMOS and STAfS with impressive results. Respectively these provide tools to specify, estimate, assess and present models; and analyze text or openly answered survey questions. In the future, I anticipate using this package to analyze our customer feedback data for core laboratory services.

Recommendations to other buyers: Very little specialist knowledge required to start using.

Comments: I used this program extensively in grad school, and I appreciated all the statistical analysis it did.

I would definitely recommend using it.

Comments: I have been using SPSS for the last 5 or so years for my research in Psychology and find it to be a very straightforward and easy to use piece of software. Colleagues have used other software but I personally find SPSS the most intuitive data analysis software. It can handle the data sets I have and run the types of analyses I need (ANOVA and regression) without any issues. Definitely, recommend to all quantitative researchers.

Pros: Very easy to use and intuitive

Cons: Not as much control over the ability to fine tune predictive models

Overall: I used IBM SPSS Modeler on a project with one of a clients, who is an insurance provider. The project was designed to identify potentially fraudulent claims for further analysis by internal investigators. I found the software to be robust and very user friendly. The software has an easy-to-use "drag and drop" user interface for importing datasets, merging datasets, sampling/filtering data, transforming data, running multiple predictive models, and evaluating model results. Even complex data flows are easy to work with and easy to modify. The modeling algorithms performed well, although there are some trade-offs between the ability to fine tune the models versus the high degree of ease-of-use. The models that I developed did identify fraudulent claims with a high level of accuracy. The model results are also easy to implement by running the results directly within the SPSS Modeler tool.

Recommendations to other buyers: Very robust data aggregation and predictive modeling tool

Comments: I've been using SPSS for a few years now, and I think it's not more than logical that it's the market leader for the segment. It's GUI makes it easy for beginners to work with it, but the understandable and fast to learn syntax makes it very neat to work with for the more advanced researcher. The only pity for the software package is the extreme pricing. I'm now using SPSS Base because of the high price for the more advanced packages, but that also means that I'm missing out on (what I think are) quite standard needs for a researcher, like logistic regression and tables. I've tried some open source packages like PSPP and R, but still SPSS is worth the money, although I think for that amount they could 'upgrade' the base package a little more to include all the basics.
