[Free Software] Alternative for SPSS

Are you using SPSS? Or maybe you want to use SPSS but don’t have any money left to but SPSS? Don’t worry guys. You don’t have to save your money now. Now, there is an alternative for SPSS that cost you no money. It’s free. And you can run it whatever OS you have. Linux? Ok. Windows ? It’s ok too.

Now, go and download PSPP, a free and open source alternative for SPSS, and appears very similar to it with a few exceptions.

The most important of these exceptions are, that there are no “time bombs”; your copy of PSPP will not “expire” or deliberately stop working in the future. Neither are there any artificial limits on the number of cases or variables which you can use. There are no additional packages to purchase in order to get “advanced” functions; all functionality that PSPP currently supports is in the core package. It’s really cost no money. Just prepare your money for download them.:mrgreen:

PSPP can perform descriptive statistics, T-tests, linear regression and non-parametric tests. Its backend is designed to perform its analyses as fast as possible, regardless of the size of the input data. You can use PSPP with its graphical interface or the more traditional syntax commands.

Below is a list of some of the features of PSPP:

  • PSPP supports over 1 billion cases.
  • PSPP supports over 1 billion variables.
  • Syntax and data files are compatible with SPSS.
  • You can use terminal or graphical user interface.
  • You can choose PSPP output formats, like text, postscript or html output formats.
  • Inter-operates with Gnumeric, OpenOffice.Org and other free software.
  • Easy data import from spreadsheets, text files and database sources.
  • Fast statistical procedures, even on very large data sets.

With features like that, you will get a great benefit by using PSPP. Now i’ll tell you how to install PSPP in ubuntu or debian.

First, you have to download its deb package from here. And then open your terminal and type this :
dpkg -i [your downloaded PSPP deb filename]

Then you can find PSPP in Applications -> Education -> GNU PSPP. Come on try it yourself.
