Spss | Nursing homework help

It is considered a best practice for researchers to spend some time, immediately after data entry, to review the data.

  • Is the data complete, or are there missing pieces that must be investigated? Are the data ranges what one might reasonably expect?
  • Are there extremes in reported values that suggest an unusual population or possible errors that will need to be traced back to the document of origin?

In the early stages, it is important for a researcher to get a bird’s-eye view of their data before diving into deeper, more complex analyses. Eventually the data will need to be cleaned, but for now the researcher just needs to identify some basic information. To this end, SPSS provides some nice tools—the most basic being the pivot tables and histograms—to easily summarize and visualize interval/ratio data, no matter how large or small. Categorical data can also be summarized with a pivot table, but you will need to use a bar graph instead of a histogram. Do you know the difference?

Instructions

For this practice exercise, you will need to upload the data set (Emotional Well-Being_your initials) you created.
