Lecture´s Description

Creating an SPSS Data File, Data and Variable View Screens
In this lecture ´´Creating an SPSS Data File´´ is explained. Section one is about ´´Creating an SPSS Data File, Data and Variable View Screens´´. Educator started this section by the representation of creating an SPSS data file. Next focus is the variable view screen. Subsequently, the data view screen is represented. After that educator discussed in detail that how The Variable View Screen and the data view screen is created.
