To improve your experience using IBM SPSS Statistics, the Version 1 SPSS experts have created various Tech Tips. This Tech Tip shows learning what’s new in IBM SPSS Statistics.  

In IBM SPSS Statistics, you can work inside a single, integrated interface to run descriptive statistics, regression, advanced statistics and machine learning models. You can create publication-ready charts, tables, and decision trees in one tool. IBM SPSS Statistics is easy to use, provides analysis automation, comprehensive statistical tools, integration with open source, and help at your fingertips.  

Every new release of IBM SPSS Statistics has new features. These features improve functionality and ease of use. For example, there have been several changes in IBM SPSS Statistics version 29.0.1. The Overview tab provides a complete visual and statistical overview of your data. New statistics have been added. These are the PRESS statistic, Youden’s Index and Percentiles. Users can now compute multiple time-dependent covariates in Cox Regression and Parametric Survival Regression models for recurrent events data. There are also new features in the output and an enhanced search dialogue. 

Even though the latest version has many new features, new users or frequently SPSS users may not be aware of these changes. Rather than researching modifications, there is a quick way to learn what’s new in SPSS Statistics. Users can click the Filemenu and select the Welcome Dialog option. On the right side of the Welcome Dialog box is the What’s New section, where users can click through new features in IBM SPSS Statistics using the arrow buttons. Each new feature has a short description of the procedure. For more information, you can search the Help Menu > Topics feature to learn more.
