The Research Institute for Women and Careers has held the “Statistical analysis useful for social surveys: SPSS Workshop” for students and staff of the university every year since 2012. In a series of four successive lectures, Kim Myoungjung of the NLI Research Institute spoke about basic knowledge and the basic operations of SPSS, data processing, cross tabulation, and the basics of statistical analysis (regression analysis). As a new experiment this year, the workshop was divided into an Introductory Segment on March 1st (Thu.) and 2nd (Fri.) and an Advanced Segment on the 5th (Mon.) and 6th (Tue.).
Judging from responses to a questionnaire survey, the workshop was very well received, with responses “The lecturer’s explanation was easy to understand.” “The material was easy to see, so it is useful for review.” and “I use SPSS for my research so it is good to know how to use it and to create a graph.”
