New Capacities of IBM SPSS Statistics for Handling Psychological Research Data
A. N. Gusev
The paper presents a review of new data handling procedures recently included in IBM SPSS Statistics (beginning from version 19) that may be helpful for psychologists when carrying out theoretical and applied research. Data statistical analysis of a new type is given. It is a multilevel data analysis that presents higher level factors as mediators and moderators. Multilevel analysis enables to assess the effect of these factors on the nature of influence of independent variables under study. The function of four new statistical procedures based on a generalized linear model is described. Specific features of a generalized linear model as a new universal way of empirical data handling are described. A brief review of modern regression models handling various data is given.
