Tests to Predict Numerical Outcomes and Identify Groups:

IBM SPSS Statistics Base contains procedures for the projects you are working on now and any new ones to come. You can be confident that you'll always have the analytic tools you need to get the job done quickly and effectively.

Factor Analysis - Used to identify the underlying variables, or factors, that explain the pattern of correlations within a set of observed variables. In IBM SPSS Statistics Base, the factor analysis procedure provides a high degree of flexibility, offering:

Seven methods of factor extraction

Five methods of rotation, including direct oblimin and promax for nonorthogonal rotations

Three methods of computing factor scores. Also, scores can be saved as variables for further analysis

K-means Cluster Analysis - Used to identify relatively homogeneous groups of cases based on selected characteristics, using an algorithm that can handle large numbers of cases but which requires you to specify the number of clusters. Select one of two methods for classifying cases, either updating cluster centers iteratively or classifying only.

Hierarchical Cluster Analysis - Used to identify relatively homogeneous groups of cases (or variables) based on selected characteristics, using an algorithm that starts with each case in a separate cluster and combines clusters until only one is left. Analyze raw variables or choose from a variety of standardizing transformations. Distance or similarity measures are generated by the Proximities procedure. Statistics are displayed at each stage to help you select the best solution.

TwoStep Cluster Analysis - Group observations into clusters based on nearness criterion, with either categorical or continuous level data; specify the number of clusters or let the number be chosen automatically.

Nearest Neighbor analysis - Use for prediction (with a specified outcome) or for classification (with no outcome specified); specify the distance metric used to measure the similarity of cases; and control whether missing values or categorical variables are treated as valid values.

Procedures Included:

General linear models (GLM) – Provides you with more flexibility to describe the relationship between a dependent variable and a set of independent variables. The GLM gives you flexible design and contrast options to estimate means and variances and to test and predict means. You can also mix and match categorical and continuous predictors to build models. Because GLM doesn't limit you to one data type, you have options that provide you with a wealth of model-building possibilities.

Linear mixed models, also known as hierarchical linear models (HLM)

Fixed effect analysis of variance (ANOVA), analysis of covariance (ANOVA), multivariate analysis of variance (MANOVA) and multivariate analysis of covariance (MANCOVA)

Random or mixed ANOVA and ANCOVA

Repeated measures ANOVA and MANOVA

Variance component estimation (VARCOMP)

The linear mixed models procedure expands the general linear models used in the GLM procedure so that you can analyze data that exhibit correlation and non-constant variability. If you work with data that display correlation and non-constant variability, such as data that represent students nested within classrooms or consumers nested within families, use the linear mixed models procedure to model means, variances and covariances in your data.

Its flexibility means you can formulate dozens of models, including split-plot design, multi-level models with fixed-effects covariance, and randomized complete blocks design. You can also select from 11 non-spatial covariance types, including first-order ante-dependence, heterogeneous, and first-order autoregressive. You'll reach more accurate predictive models because it takes the hierarchical structure of your data into account.

You can also use linear mixed models if you're working with repeated measures data, including situations in which there are different numbers of repeated measurements, different intervals for different cases, or both. Unlike standard methods, linear mixed models use all your data and give you a more accurate analysis.

Generalized linear models (GENLIN): GENLIN covers not only widely used statistical models, such as linear regression for normally distributed responses, logistic models for binary data, and loglinear model for count data, but also many useful statistical models via its very general model formulation. The independence assumption, however, prohibits generalized linear models from being applied to correlated data.

Generalized estimating equations (GEE): GEE extend generalized linear models to accommodate correlated longitudinal data and clustered data.

General models of multiway contingency tables (LOGLINEAR)

Hierarchical loglinear models for multiway contingency tables (HILOLINEAR)

Loglinear and logit models to count data by means of a generalized linear models approach (GENLOG)

Survival analysis procedures:

IBM SPSS Regression Overview, Features and Benefits

More Statistics for Data Analysis

Expand the capabilities of IBM® SPSS® Statistics Base for the data analysis stage in the analytical process. Using IBM SPSS Regression with IBM SPSS Statistics Base gives you an even wider range of statistics so you can get the most accurate response for specific data types.

IBM SPSS Regression includes:

Multinomial logistic regression (MLR): Regress a categorical dependent variable with more than two categories on a set of independent variables. This procedure helps you accurately predict group membership within key groups.
You can also use stepwise functionality, including forward entry, backward elimination, forward stepwise or backward stepwise, to find the best predictor from dozens of possible predictors. If you have a large number of predictors, Score and Wald methods can help you more quickly reach results. You can access your model fit using Akaike information criterion (AIC) and Bayesian information criterion (BIC; also called Schwarz Bayesian criterion, or SBC).

Binary logistic regression: Group people with respect to their predicted action. Use this procedure if you need to build models in which the dependent variable is dichotomous (for example, buy versus not buy, pay versus default, graduate versus not graduate). You can also use binary logistic regression to predict the probability of events such as solicitation responses or program participation.
With binary logistic regression, you can select variables using six types of stepwise methods, including forward (the procedure selects the strongest variables until there are no more significant predictors in the dataset) and backward (at each step, the procedure removes the least significant predictor in the dataset) methods. You can also set inclusion or exclusion criteria. The procedure produces a report telling you the action it took at each step to determine your variables.

Nonlinear regression (NLR) and constrained nonlinear regression (CNLR): Estimate nonlinear equations. If you are you working with models that have nonlinear relationships, for example, if you are predicting coupon redemption as a function of time and number of coupons distributed, estimate nonlinear equations using one of two IBM SPSS Statistics procedures: nonlinear regression (NLR) for unconstrained problems and constrained nonlinear regression (CNLR) for both constrained and unconstrained problems.
NLR enables you to estimate models with arbitrary relationships between independent and dependent variables using iterative estimation algorithms, while CNLR enables you to:

Use linear and nonlinear constraints on any combination of parameters

Estimate parameters by minimizing any smooth loss function (objective function)

Compute bootstrap estimates of parameter standard errors and correlations

Weighted least squares (WLS): If the spread of residuals is not constant, the estimated standard errors will not be valid. Use Weighted Least Square to estimate the model instead (for example, when predicting stock values, stocks with higher shares values fluctuate more than low value shares.)

Two-stage least squares (2LS): Use this technique to estimate your dependent variable when the independent variables are correlated with the regression error terms.
For example, a book club may want to model the amount they cross-sell to members using the amount that members spend on books as a predictor. However, money spent on other items is money not spent on books, so an increase in cross-sales corresponds to a decrease in book sales. Two-Stage Least-Squares Regression corrects for this error.

Probit analysis: Probit analysis is most appropriate when you want to estimate the effects of one or more independent variables on a categorical dependent variable.
For example, you would use probit analysis to establish the relationship between the percentage taken off a product, and whether a customer will buy as the prices decreases. Then, for every percent taken off the price you can work out the probability that a consumer will buy the product.

IBM SPSS Regression includes additional diagnostics for use when developing a classification table

IBM SPSS Data Preparation Overview, Features, and Benefits

IBM® SPSS® Data Preparation gives analysts advanced techniques to streamline the data preparation stage of the analytical process. All researchers have to prepare their data before analysis. While basic data preparation tools are included in IBM SPSS Statistics Base, IBM SPSS Data Preparation provides specialized techniques to prepare your data for more accurate analyses and results.

With IBM SPSS Data Preparation, you can:

Quickly identify suspicious or invalid cases, variables and data values

View patterns of missing data

Summarize variable distributions

Optimally bin nominal data

More accurately prepare your data for analysis

Use Automated Data Preparation (ADP) to detect and correct quality errors and impute missing values in one efficient step

Expand your Data Preparation Techniques with IBM SPSS Data Preparation

Use the specialized data preparation techniques in IBM SPSS Data Preparation to facilitate data preparation in the analytical process. IBM SPSS Data Preparation easily plugs into IBM SPSS Statistics Base so you can seamlessly work in the IBM SPSS environment.

Perform Data Checks

Data validation has typically been a manual process. You might run a frequency on your data, print the frequencies, circle what needs to be fixed and check for case IDs. This approach is time consuming and prone to errors. And since every analyst in your organization could use a slightly different method, maintaining consistency from project to project may be a challenge.

To eliminate manual checks, use the IBM SPSS Data Preparation Validate Data procedure. This enables you to apply rules to perform data checks based on each variable's measure level (whether categorical or continuous).

For example, if you're analyzing data that has variables on a five-point Likert scale, use the Validate Data procedure to apply a rule for five-point scales and flag all cases that have values outside of the 1-5 range. You can receive reports of invalid cases as well as summaries of rule violations and the number of cases affected. You can specify validation rules for individual variables (such as range checks) and cross-variable checks (for example, "retired 30 year-olds").

With this knowledge you can determine data validity and remove or correct suspicious cases at your discretion before analysis.

Quickly Find Multivariate Outliers

Prevent outliers from skewing analyses when you use the IBM SPSS Data Preparation Anomaly Detection procedure. This searches for unusual cases based upon deviations from similar cases, and gives reasons for such deviations. You can flag outliers by creating a new variable. Once you have identified unusual cases, you can further examine them and determine if they should be included in your analyses.

Pre-process Data before Model Building

In order to use algorithms that are designed for nominal attributes (such as Naïve Bayes and logit models), you must bin your scale variables before model building. If scale variables aren't binned, algorithms such as multinomial logistic regression will take an extremely long time to process or they might not converge. This is especially true if you have a large dataset. In addition, the results you receive may be difficult to read or interpret.

IBM SPSS Data Preparation Optimal Binning, however, enables you to determine cutpoints to help you reach the best possible outcome for algorithms designed for nominal attributes.

With this procedure, you can select from three types of binning for pre processing data:

Unsupervised -- create bins with equal counts

Supervised -- take the target variable into account to determine cutpoints. This method is more accurate than unsupervised; however, it is also more computationally intensive.

Hybrid approach -- combines the unsupervised and supervised approaches. This method is particularly useful if you have a large number of distinct values.

IBM SPSS Missing Values

IBM® SPSS® Missing Values is used by survey researchers, social scientists, data miners, market researchers and others to validate data.

Missing data can seriously affect your models – and your results. Ignoring missing data, or assuming that excluding missing data is sufficient, risks reaching invalid and insignificant results. To ensure that you take missing values into account, make IBM SPSS Missing Values part of your data management and preparation.

Uncover Missing Data Patterns

With IBM SPSS Missing Values, you can easily examine data from several different angles using one of six diagnostic reports to uncover missing data patterns. You can then estimate summary statistics and impute missing values through regression or expectation maximization algorithms (EM algorithms).

IBM SPSS Missing Values helps you to:

Diagnose if you have a serious missing data imputation problem

Replace missing values with estimates -- for example, impute your missing data with the regression or EM algorithms

Quickly and Easily Diagnose Your Missing Data

Quickly diagnose a serious missing data problem using the data patterns report, which provides a case-by-case overview of your data. This report helps you determine the extent of missing data; it displays a snapshot of each type of missing value and any extreme values for each case.

Reach More Valid Conclusions

Replace missing values with estimates and increase the chance of receiving statistically significant results. Remove hidden bias from your data by replacing missing values with estimates to include all groups in your analysis – even those with poor responsiveness.

Use Multiple Imputation to Replace Missing Data Values

IBM SPSS Missing Values' multiple imputation procedure will help you understand patterns of “missingness” in your dataset and enable you to replace missing values with plausible estimates. It offers a fully automatic imputation mode that chooses the most suitable imputation method based on characteristics of your data, while also allowing you to customize your imputation model.

Several complete datasets are generated (typically, three to five), each with a different set of replacement values. Next, you can model the individual datasets, using techniques such as linear regression, to produce parameter estimates for each dataset. Then you can obtain final parameter estimates. This involves pooling the individual sets of parameter estimates obtained in step two and computing inferential statistics that take into account variation within and between imputations.

Analysis of the individual datasets and pooling of the results are supported via existing IBM SPSS Statistics procedures such as REGRESSION. When operating on datasets with imputed values, existing procedures will automatically produce pooled parameter estimates.

Fill in the Blanks for Improved Data Management

IBM SPSS Missing Values has the statistics you need to fill in missing data:

Univariate: compute count, mean, standard deviation, and standard error of mean for all cases excluding those containing missing values, count and percent of missing values, and extreme values for all variables

IBM SPSS Missing Values also has features that enable you to analyze patterns and manage data, including the ability to:

Display missing data and extreme cases for all cases and all variables using the data patterns table

Determine differences between missing and non-missing groups for a related variable with the separate t test table

Assess how much missing data for one variable relates to the missing data of another variable using the percent mismatch of patterns table

These plans act as a template and allow you to save all the decisions made when creating the plan – define it once and you're done. This saves time and improves accuracy for yourself and others who may want to plug your plans into the data to replicate results or pick up where you left off.

Use the following types of sample design information with IBM SPSS Complex Samples:

Stratified sampling – Increase the precision of your sample or ensure a representative sample from key groups by choosing to sample within subgroups of the survey population.

Clustered sampling – Select clusters, which are groups of sampling units, for your survey. Clustering often helps makes surveys more cost-effective.

Multistage sampling – Select an initial or first-stage sample based on groups of elements in your population; then create a second-stage sample by drawing a sub-sample from each selected unit in the first-stage sample. By repeating this option, you can select a higher-stage sample.

Everything You Need for Planning

To help you through the planning stage in the analytical process, IBM SPSS Complex Samples provides you with specialized tools and procedures for working with sample survey data:

IBM SPSS Complex Samples Plan (CSPLAN) – Use this procedure to specify the sampling frame to create a complex sample design or analysis specification used by companion procedures in IBM SPSS Complex Samples.

Sampling Plan Wizard – If you are creating your own samples, use the Sampling Plan Wizard to define the scheme and draw the sample.

Analysis Preparation Wizard – If you're using public-use datasets that already have samples, use the Analysis Plan Wizard to specify how the samples were defined and how standard errors should be estimated.

Plan files – Once you have created plan files, you can save them and treat them as templates. This allows you to save all the decisions you made when creating the plan. This saves time and improves accuracy for yourself and others who may want to plug your plans into the data to replicate results or pick up where you left off.

IBM SPSS Neural Networks (a $1200 value)

IBM® SPSS® Neural Networks offers non-linear data modeling procedures that enable you to discover more complex relationships in your data.

Using the procedures in IBM SPSS Neural Networks, you can develop more accurate and effective predictive models. The result? Deeper insight and better decision making.

What is a neural network?

A computational neural network is a set of non-linear data modeling tools consisting of input and output layers plus one or two hidden layers. The connections between neurons in each layer have associated weights, which are iteratively adjusted by the training algorithm to minimize error and provide accurate predictions.

Complement traditional statistical techniques

The procedures in IBM SPSS Neural Networks complement the more traditional statistics in IBM SPSS Statistics Base and its modules. Find new associations in your data with Neural Networks and then confirm their significance with traditional statistical techniques

How can you use IBM SPSS Neural Networks?

You can combine Neural Networks with other statistical procedures to gain clearer insight in a number of areas:

Market research

Create customer profiles

Discover customer preferences

Database marketing

Segment your customer base

Optimize campaigns

Financial analysis

Analyze applicants’ creditworthiness

Detect possible fraud

Operational analysis

Manage cash flow

Improve logistics planning

Healthcare

Forecast treatment costs

Perform medical outcomes analysis

Use data mining techniques

IBM SPSS Neural Networks provides a complementary approach to the data analysis techniques available in IBM SPSS Statistics Base and its modules. From the familiar IBM SPSS Statistics interface, you can “mine” your data for hidden relationships, using either the Multilayer Perceptron (MLP) or Radial Basis Function (RBF) procedure.

Both of these are supervised learning techniques – that is, they map relationships implied by the data. Both use feed-forward architectures, meaning that data moves in only one direction, from the input nodes through the hidden layer or layers of nodes to the output nodes.

Your choice of procedure will be influenced by the type of data you have and the level of complexity you seek to uncover. While the MLP procedure can find more complex relationships, the RBF procedure is generally faster.

With either of these approaches, the procedure operates on a training set of data and then applies that knowledge to the entire dataset, and to any new data.

Control the process from start to finish

After selecting a procedure, you specify the dependent variables, which may be scale, categorical or a combination of the two. You adjust the procedure by choosing how to partition the dataset, what sort of architecture you want and what computation resources will be applied to the analysis.

Finally, you choose whether you want to display results in tables or graphs, save optional temporary variables to the active dataset and/or export models in XML-based file format to score future data.
