Pros: SPSS is the most user-friendly statistical analysis and data mining software on the market. The point-and-click interface makes it easy to construct. The ability to create scripts for future automation is nice and its movement into new areas like text analytics and big data makes it more useful. The SPSS output is the best I've ever used for publication quality tables.

Cons: Although SPSS is very user-friendly, its graphical capabilities are sub-par compared to similar software. Because the software is so user-friendly, if you're a more advanced user like myself, SPSS takes more time and has more restrictions to customize the reports and analytical reports.

Overall: The software benefits me by offering easy to read and useful tables and charts that don't require tons of time outside of the software to make the tables/charts publication quality. Every reader of my SPSS works loves what SPSS produces.

Pros: They say its "easy to use, difficult to learn". I wish the interface were more user friendly and easy to figure out if you don't know EXACTLY what type of report to run. It would be more valuable to students if they were able to work out what type of report they need for the statistical analysis they would like.

Cons: The functions are often hard to find and the user interface is not super intuitive. For Pros, they are able to find what they need though if they have a lot of experience with the program.

This is a special package for mathematical analysis. It is robust in design and easy to use by all.

Pros: SPSS was the system I used as I learned about Quantitative analysis and statistics. Its very straightforward in terms of use, inputs, tests, and outputs. While this software is very straightforward, that does not necessarily mean it is simple. SPSS is a quality tool for the researcher in making complex statistical calculations. While I'm not familiar with other software in this field, I found SPSS to be adequate for to meet all of my needs in quantitative analysis of data.

Cons: While this software is high-quality and performs as advertised, it is not easily utilized by a novice researcher. The guides and resources that come with the program are very helpful and detailed, but I wish some of this information or guides were built into the software itself rather than having to google or consult other sources to correctly input data and run statistical analysis.

Overall: Accurate, straightforward, and reliable performance in statistical analysis

Pros: It is simple and can do a lot without having to be an absolute expert at statistical analyses. There are also a lot of resources (books, websites, etc) with instructions on how to do pretty much everything in SPSS, so if you're stuck, you can usually figure it out.

Cons: The bad side of SPSS being simple to use is that it has limitations. The best example I can think of is that the visuals are sorely lacking. If you want to make a table, graph, or some other visual representation of your results and you want it to be appealing, you will need to use something else.

Overall: As a graduate student who hasn't had many years working with statistics, SPSS is user-friendly and allows me to work on my thesis and other projects mostly on my own.

Pros: SPSS is relatively easy to use and figure out once you know what you're doing.

SPSS is the first software I used for statistical analysis (I work in marketing), and I've yet to find another product I like better.

Pros: The importance of capture and analyze data to create tables and graphs with complex data.
Its ability to manage large volumes of data and carrying out text analysis amog other formats.
Being able to use the statistical software, with descriptive statistics such as tabulation and crossover frequencies, and correlation tests.
The program allows you to take your data and easily create a wide variety of visual effects such as radial boxplots and density graphs.

Cons: In more complex programs you need to have programming knowledge, as well as to make the most laborious calculations.
In statistics, often contradictory results can be obtained between different tests.
It does not provide the expected results in the expected time.
It sometimes leads to unnecessary sophistication by allowing the use of complex techniques to answer simple questions. If the user does not have previous experience using SPSS or if their statistical knowledge is not up to date, it is difficult to understand which options to select. The results reports contain an excessive level of information.

Overall: With SPSS it is possible to collect data, create statistics, analyze management decisions and much more. Gives the opportunity of doing complex analysis and take on prediction models.
The capacity of solving problems of applied statistics by brute force or by trying thousands of combinations to finally stay with what is believed to be the best for use.

Pros: Running statistical analyses can be extremely daunting for beginners, which is where SPSS shines compared to other stats programs. The ease of the "point and shoot" interface removes the technical barrier that some stats beginners face; however, that doesn't mean SPSS isn't useful for seasoned coders. I like being able to switch between "point and shoot" and writing my own procedures in my projects, but I've also found that it helps take the "mystery" out of coding for students. I've also found the "help" documents to be very useful and thorough, and there are a multitude of "how to" videos posted on YouTube, which come in handy for beginners.

Cons: I don't like using SPSS when I'm working with big data sets because it seems to lag a lot. Also, I think having to purchase additional "add on" software to run SEM is ridiculous, which is why I use other stats programs for those types of projects.

In my previous job, I used SPSS a lot, used it for lecturer assessment by students analysis.

Pros:
It allows working with tables with a large number of variables to apply multivariate methods such as the analysis of major components to reduce information and generate new variables to facilitate interpretation and to respond to problems of geographical research.

Cons:
The graphics generated with the application of multivariate methods, the representations of variable points in projection scales are very tight, which causes an agglomeration of graphic information that makes interpretation difficult.

Pros: The best thing about this program is the ability it has to work with large databases, with which data analysis, creation of tables and graphs with complex data are made, it includes descriptive statistics such as tabulation and crossover frequencies, statistics of two variables, correlation, among others, in terms of transforming the data that allow us to discover relationships of dependence and interdependence, establish classifications of subjects and variables, predict behaviors in order to help us to make management decisions.

Cons:
There is nothing wrong, just that the user must have a high statistical knowledge to use all the options offered by the program, if you have only basic knowledge you can be confused in the choice of the option and also that the result throws a huge amount of information that can confuse the user.

Overall: It benefits me to handle complex database and throws me the required results in a short time.

Pros: Every statistical analysis software varies on its strengths, but I find SPSS to be more user friendly in comparison to other software like "R." When you have to sit down for 6 hours, frame and enter data, and grind out what analyses you're running, having an easy to understand interface is a major bonus. There are also lots of independent resources and manuals like Andy Field's guide books to provide excellent walkthroughs.

Cons: One thing I don't like is the price, but that's every software that's worth the cost. You hate to shell out, but then immediately understand it's necessity when you grind out hours of data and feel confident in your work process. The price is honestly fair for the quality of the software.

Overall: I'm able to run statistical analysis from simple sets or syntax, to complicated or multiple variable sets with ease. A good software for time consuming tasks means higher efficiency, which is exactly what I get with SPSS.

Applies the models to data and real situations and interprets the results obtained in the applications can use multiple models to analyze quantitative or qualitative data, outputs and representation of the data is simple and intuitive, people with basic knowledge of statistics can use the program and get very good results.

Cons:
As it has the capacity to work with large databases and an interface for the majority of analyzes, the reports of results are elaborated with a lot of information, which allows to distract the user, it may be that the user is lost due to the large amount of information that is generated, in addition to this, care should be taken with the application of the methods, since some are used for specific cases, for example the handling of qualitative data.

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.

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.

SPSS rocks!

Pros: Two ways for doing things: cliciking it out of windows or from syntax

Cons: It is complicated for beginers.

Overall: In Research SPSS is as basic as Office in regular life. I personally have been using it for 10 years and still find it best data processing/ statistical tool there is.

Solid for beginners doing statistical analysis

Comments: SPSS is the software one likely gets introduced to when taking Statistics class and in particularly when dealing with survey data. The menus provide very useful options to manipulate data and process survey results. However, in more recent times I have substituted its use in favor of R, which is free..in contrast to SPSS.

A great tool for your data.

Comments: With company's data growing exponentially, traditional data analytics and statistical software just don't make the cut. SPSS is a powerful tool for all those number crunching and analysis. It is easy to learn, so get started.

Comments: I used this program extensively in grad school, and I appreciated all the statistical analysis it did. It wasn't intuitive for me because I had never done any computerized statistical analyses before, but once I was taught how to use it, it was very easy to use and worked very well. I would definitely recommend using it.

Great analysis software

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.

it a user friendly software and perfect for my statitical analysis\
