SPSS Statistics is a comprehensive software package that includes data management, statistics, and reporting capabilities. SPSS is a modular product, so additional modules can be used to carry out specific analyses not supported by the Base product. The UA site license includes:

  • SPSS Statistics Base
  • SPSS Advanced Statistics
  • SPSS Regression
  • SPSS Custom Tables

Additional modules are available to faculty and staff through the SPSS Statistics Faculty Pack.
