What IBM SPSS Statistics Does Well
Users who gave IBM SPSS Statistics a positive review commented that the simplicity of the software makes research more convenient, even for students. Other users said that the platform does not just offer basic statistical reports but also provides advanced data mining using logistic regression, generalized additive models, and more.
“The company does well at creating a product that is easy to use with a great GUI (graphical user interface). It features drop-down menus that are easy to navigate, which is different from several of the other statistical packages on the market. The program also has great functionality and allows users to import custom dialogue boxes for whatever your needs are, so it is versatile.”
—Elizabeth (Stickel) Minton
What IBM SPSS Statistics Does Not Do Well
Users who gave IBM SPSS Statistics a negative review said that the interface needs improvement. Many users noted that you have to first learn how to manually do statistics or at least have a background of the subject for you to understand and appreciate the app.
“The interface isn’t very intuitive at all and is mostly just a bunch of drop-down menus with little direction. Bottom line: You really need to know about stats before you use this software. However, because it is the leading GUI stat software, there is abundant documentation on this from IBM, universities, and others that detail how to do various operations (and interpret the output).”
—Ho’omana Nathan Horton
