Getting Started with PSPP


GNU PSPP is a program for statistical analysis of sampled data and a free alternative to SPSS. PSPP can work with SPSS data files and has a comparable syntax. It does not limit the number of cases or variables which can be used and can be interacted with via a graphical or terminal user interface.

What can it do?

PSPP can perform many tasks including but not limited to descriptive statistics, T-test, anova, linear and logistic regression, measures of association, cluster analysis, reliability and factor analysis and non-parametric tests.

Notable Features

  • Easy data import from spreadsheets, text files and database sources.
  • The capability to open, analyze and edit two or more datasets concurrently that can also be merged, joined or concatenated.
  • A user interface supporting all common character sets and which has been translated to multiple languages.
  • Fast statistical procedures, even on very large data sets.
