PSPP is an alternative to SPSS, a program used to analyze data. PSPP doesn't impose limits on the variables you use and you don't have to acquire different versions in order to access advanced functions. Like SPSS, PSPP can be used for non-parametric tests, descriptive statistics and more. It is a fast running package no matter how large or small the input data happens to be. You can use the graphical interface or, if you prefer, syntax commands. |
PSPP's data files and syntax are compatible with SPSS and it supports over a billion variables and cases. You can operate it with Open Office, Gnumeric and other open source software you may be using. Like SPSS, it's simple to import data from other sources such as text files or spreadsheets. You can also export files in portable, system and ASCII format. No matter what type of computer you have or which operating system you are using, PSPP is likely to be compatible.
You have a choice of formats for your output and graphics including PDF, HTML and ASCII. PSPP also produces histograms and a variety of charts to make your results attractive and understandable for presentation.
