Good Samaritan, help with SPSS basics.

Postby Marcus87 » Tue Apr 08, 2014 8:00 pm

Hello friends, English is not my first language so i`m sorry if there are any linguistic mistakes.

I am taking a supplemental course outside of my major (political science) in statistics and while everything was fine, the last assignment that was given Friday is about using SPSS. I never used it before and i need some help.

I can provide more information via PM or e-mail but basically i need too:

1. Use SPSS to run a non-parametric test based on some data provided to me (4 columns of related data, duration, interval, height and the 3 different years). I need to find if the different years have similar time intervals or if they are changing.

I tried to use analyze - Non-Parametric Tests but after that i don`t know which option to choose..

2. Use SPSS to test the normality of 2 distributions.
What test should i run...

3. Use SPSS to test the normality of a variable and then use the appropriate correlation test (then wrap it up with a statistic test).
Again, what test should i be running...

Please help.

Edit: I'm using Windows 7, SPSS 22.

Anyone?

I was able to get the first one done but now i need to compare 2 companies to see how much difference in income they produce.

I'm not sure what to use in SPSS to do that...
