Data analysis using spss

  1. 1. DATA ANALYSIS USING SPSS Muhammad Ibrahim Associate Professor of Statistics Govt. MAO College Lahore 0300-4668681
  2. 2. LEARNING OBJECTIVES 1.  Understand basic concepts of biostatistics and computer software SPSS. 2.  Select appropriate statistical tests for particular types of data. 3.  Recognize and interpret the output from statistical analyses. 4.  Report statistical output in a concise and appropriate manner.
  3. 3. BASIC TERMINOLOGY Statistics, Biostatistics, Variable, Measurement Scale, Data, Medical Data, type of data, Data Analysis
  4. 4. VARIABLE, SCALE, DATA Variable is a characteristics which varies and scale is a device on which observations are taken. Data is set of observations/measurements taken from experiment/survey or external source of a specific variable using some appropriate measurement scale
  5. 5. Statistics and Bio-statistics Statistics is generally understood as the subject dealing with number and data, more broadly it involves activities such as collection of data from survey or experiment, summarization or management of data, presentation of results in a convincing format, analysis of data or drawing valid inferences from findings. Whereas Bio-Statistics is science which helps us in managing medical data with application of statistical methods/techniques/tools or a collection of statistical procedures particularly well-suited to the analysis of healthcare-related data
  6. 6. What is medical data? The data which is related to patient care or numerical information regarding patient’s clinical characteristics, mortality rate survival rate, disease distribution, prevalence of disease, efficacy of treatment, and other such information is called medical data.
  7. 7. NATURE OF DATA Data is the value you get from observing (measuring, counting, assessing etc.) from experiment or survey. Data is either categorical or metric. Categorical data is further divided into Nominal and ordinal, whereas metric into discrete and continuous (quantitative) data.
  8. 8. Nominal data The data is divided into classes or categories. Blood type, sex, causes of disease, urban/rural, alive/ dead, infected/not infected, hair color, smoking status. No meaningful order of classes. Ordinal data The data is also divided into classes or categories but be put in meaningful order. For example satisfaction level:-Very satisfied, satisfied, neutral, unsatisfied, very unsatisfied. Pain as mild, moderate, sever. Socioeconomic status: poor, middle, rich, grade of breast cancer, better, same, worst. Discrete data When data is taken from some counting process, for example number of patients in different wards, number of nurses, number of hospitals in different cities. Continuous or quantitative data When data is taken from some measuring process, for example, height, weight, Temperature, uric acid, blood glucose and serum level.
  9. 9. Primary Scales of Measurement Scale Basic Characteristics Common Examples Marketing Examples Nominal Numbers identify & classify objects Social Security nos., numbering of football players Brand nos., store types Percentages, mode Chi-square, binomial test Ordinal Nos. indicate the relative positions of objects but not the magnitude of differences between them Quality rankings, rankings of teams in a tournament Preference rankings, market position, social class Percentile, median Rank-order correlation, Friedman ANOVA Ratio Zero point is fixed, ratios of scale values can be compared Length, weight Age, sales, income, costs Geometric mean, harmonic mean Coefficient of variation Permissible Statistics Descriptive Inferential Interval Differences between objects Temperature (Fahrenheit) Attitudes, opinions, index Range, mean, standard Product- moment
  10. 10. Nominal Scale  The numbers serve only as labels or tags for identifying and classifying objects.  When used for identification, there is a strict one-to-one correspondence between the numbers and the objects.  The numbers do not reflect the amount of the characteristic possessed by the objects.  The only permissible operation on the numbers in a nominal scale is counting.  Social security number, hockey players number. Imn marketing research respondents, brands, attributes, stores and other objects
  11. 11. ORDINAL SCALE A ranking scale in which numbers are assigned to objects to indicate the relative extent to which the objects possess some characteristic. Can determine whether an object has more or less of a characteristic than some other object, but not how much more or less. any series of numbers can be assigned that preserves the ordered relationships between the objects. So relative position of objects not the magnitude of difference between the objects. In addition to the counting operation allowable for nominal scale data, ordinal scales permit the use of statistics based on percentile, quartile, median. Possess description and order, not distance or origin
  12. 12. INTERVAL SCALE Numerically equal distances on the scale represent equal values in the characteristic being measured. It permits comparison of the differences between objects. The difference between 1 & 2 is same as between 2 & 3 The location of the zero point is not fixed. Both the zero point and the units of measurement are arbitrary. Everyday temperature scale. Attitudinal data obtained on rating scales. Do not possess origin characteristics (zero and exact measurement)
  13. 13. RATIO SCALE The highest scale that allows to identify objects, rank order of objects, and compare intervals or differences. It is also meaningful to compute ratios of scale values Possesses all the properties of the nominal, ordinal, and interval scales. It has an absolute zero point. Height, weight, age, money. Sales, costs, market share and number of customers are variables measured on a ratio scale All statistical techniques can be applied to ratio data.
  14. 14. After collecting the accurate and reliable data successfully by using the appropriate method from the source, the next step is how to extract the pertinent and useful information buried in the data for further manipulation and interpretation. The process of performing certain calculations and evaluation in order to extract relevant information from data is called data analysis. Data Analysis
  15. 15. The data analysis may take several steps to reach certain conclusions. Simple data can be organized very easily, while the complex data requires proper processing. The word “processing” means the recasting and dealing with data making ready for analysis. Cont……
  16. 16. •Questionnaire checking/Data preparation •Coding •Cleaning data •Applying most appropriate tools for analysis Steps in data analysis
  17. 17. QUESTIONNAIRE CHECKING A questionnaire returned from the field may be unacceptable for several reasons. Parts of the questionnaire may be incomplete. The pattern of responses may indicate that the respondent did not understand or follow the instructions. The responses show little variance. One or more pages are missing. The questionnaire is received after the pre-established cutoff date. The questionnaire is answered by someone who does not qualify for participation.
  18. 18. DATA PREPARATION Preparation of data file It is important to convert raw data into a usable data for analysis (coding where it needed), simply transform information from questionnaire to computer database The analysis and results will surely depend on the quality of data There are possibilities of errors in handling instruments, raw data, transcribing, data entry, assigning codes, values, value labels Data need to be cleaned to fulfill the analysis conditions
  19. 19. CODING Coding means assigning a code, usually a number, to each possible response to each question.
  20. 20. •One of the first steps in analyzing data is to “clean” it of any obvious data entry errors: Outliers? (really high or low numbers) Example: Age = 110 (really 10 or 11?) •Value entered that doesn’t exist for variable? Example: 2 entered where 1=male, 0=female •Missing values? Did the person not give an answer? Was answer accidentally not entered into the database? Data cleaning
  21. 21. •May be able to set defined limits when entering data Prevents entering a 2 when only 1, 0, or missing are acceptable values •Univariate data analysis is a useful way to check the quality of the data Cont……
  22. 22. SPSS SPSS is a statistical Packages for data analysis, it is a very popular software because of its friendly usage in Social & Medical sciences
  23. 23. Launching SPSS Before starting this session, you should know how to run a program in windows operating system. Click and hold on button at lower left of your screen, and among the program listed select SPSS 16.0, click and release the mouse button to lauanch the program
  24. 24. On clicking of SPSS this window will open then click on cancel button if you like to enter data in a new file or click on OK for opening an existing file. A window will open known as data editor with variable view.
  25. 25. SPSS WINDOWS There are a number of different types of windows in SPSS. The window in which you are currently working is called the active window. Some of the frequently used windows are: Data Editor Window: It displays the contents of the data file. This is the window that opens automatically when you start an SPSS session. In this window, you can create new data files or modify existing ones. When you open more than one data file, each data file has a separate Data Editor Window. The Data Editor Window provides two view of the data: Data View: It displays the data values. Each variable is a column. Each row is a case. Variable View: It displays a table consisting of variable names and their attributes. You can modify the properties of each variable or add new variables or delete existing variables in the Variable View Window. Data view window variable view window
  26. 26. Viewer Window: It displays statistical results, tables, and charts. This window opens automatically the first time you run a procedure that generates output
  28. 28. PULL-DOWN MENUS Many tasks in SPSS are performed by selecting appropriate "pull-down" menus. Each window in SPSS has its own menu bar with appropriate menu selections and toolbars. The Analyze and Graphs menus are available in all windows. Here are some Data Editor Window menus and their uses: File Menu: From the file menu you can open several different existing files or a database file such as an excel file or read in a text file. You can also save any changes to the current file. Edit Menu: from the Edit menu, you can cut, copy, paste, insert variables, insert cases, or use find in the Data Editor window. Data Menu: The data menu allows you to define variable properties, sort cases, merge files, split files, select cases and use a variable to weight cases. Transform Menu: The transform menu is where you will find the options to do some computations on variables, to create new variables from existing ones or recode old variables. Analyze Menu: The analyze menu is where all statistical analysis takes place. From descriptive statistics to regression analysis to nonparametric tests
  29. 29. Graphs Menu: The graph menu is where you can create high resolution plots and graphs to be edited in the chart editor window or you can create interactive graphs. Utilities Menu: The utilities menu is used to display information on the contents of SPSS data files or to run scripts. Add-Ons Menu: From the add-ons menu you can run other packages like conjoint, classification trees, or Neural Networks. Also there are programmability extensions that allow you to integrate programs like R and Python into SPSS. But you should keep in mind that if you want to run any of the add-ons listed here you will have to purchase them separately. Window: From the window menu you can change the active window. The window with a check mark is the active one. In this case it is the data editor window. Help: The help menu allows you to get help on topics in SPSS or to ask the statistics coach some basic questions. TOOLBARS Each window in SPSS has its own toolbars that provides access to common tasks. Some windows have more than one. When you put the mouse pointer on a tool, there is a brief description of what the tool does. You can show, move or hide a toolbar.
  30. 30. STATUS BARS The status bar is at the bottom of each SPSS window and provides the following information: Command Status: gives information about a procedure that is running. Filter Status: Filter On shows when a subset of cases in the data is used for analysis. Weight Status: Weight On indicates that a weight variable is being used in the analysis. Split File Status: Split File On indicates that the file has been split into separate groups for analysis. DIALOG BOXES Many menu selections will open dialog boxes. In these dialog boxes, you select variables and options for analysis. The main dialog box in any statistical procedure has the following parts: Source variable list: A list of variable types (allowed by the procedure) from the working data file. Target variable lists: One or more lists of variables needed for the analysis. Command push buttons: Buttons that can be used to run the procedure by opening a subdialog box to make additional specifications. Some of the push buttons are: OK : Click this button to run the procedure. Paste: Click this button to generate command syntax from your selections. The command syntax is pasted into a syntax window, where it can be modified for future analysis. This creates the code regularly known as SPSS programs. Reset: Deselects any selections, and resets all specifications in the dialog box and any subdialog boxes to the default status. Cancel: Cancels any change in the dialog box settings since the last time it was opened. This will close the dialog box. Help: Provides help about the current dialog box.
  31. 31. Name The name of each SPSS variable in a given file must be unique; it must start with a letter; it may have up to 8 characters (including letters, numbers, and the underscore _ (note that certain key words are reversed and may not be used as variable names, e.g., "compute", "sum", and so forth). To change an existing name, click in the cell containing the name, highlight the part you want to change, and type in the replacement. To create a new variable name, click in the first empty row under the name column and type a new (unique) variable name. Notice that we can use "cat_dog" but not "cat-dog" and not "cat dog". The hyphen gets interpreted as subtraction (cat minus dog) by S PSS, and the space confuses SPSS as to how many variables are being named.
  33. 33. Decimals The decimal of a variable is the number of decimal places that SPSS will display. If more decimals have been entered (or computed by SPSS), the additional information will be retained internally but not displayed on screen. For whole numbers, you would reduce the number of decimals to zero. You can change the number of decimal places by clicking in the decimals cell for the desired variable and typing a new number or you can use the arrow keys at the edge of the cell Label The label of a variable is a string of text to indentify in more detail what a variable represents. Unlike the name, the label is limited to 255 characters and may contain spaces and punctuation. For instance, if there is a variable for each question on a questionnaire, you would type the question as the variable label. To change or edit a variable label, simply click anywhere within the cell
  34. 34. Values Although the variable label goes a long way to explaining what the variable represents, for categorical data (discrete data of both nominal and ordinal levels of measurement), we often need to know which numbers represent which categories. To indicate how these numbers are assigned, one can add labels to specific values by clicking on the ... box in the values cell Clicking here opens up the Value Labels dialogue box.
  35. 35. To value 1.0 to cats and 2.0 to dogs, write 1.0 in value box and write cats in value label then click Add button, the following box will appear.
  36. 36. Clicking on this box will bring up the variable type menu: If you select a numeric variable, you can then click in the width box or the decimal box to change the default values of 8 characters reserved to displaying numbers with 2 decimal places. For whole numbers, you can drop the decimals down to 0. If you select a string variable, you can tell SPSS how much "room" to leave in memory for each value, indicating the number of characters to be allowed for data entry in this string variable.
  37. 37. When you are satisfied with the definitions of each value, click on the OK button
  38. 38. The real beauty of value labels can be seen in the Data View by clicking on the "toe tag" icon in the tool bar , which switches between the numeric values and their labels
  39. 39. A view of different variables with their descriptions
  40. 40. Missing When you click missing button the SPSS will display this We sometimes want to signal to SPSS that data should be treated as missing, even though there is some other numerical code recorded instead of the data actually being missing (in which case SPSS displays a single period -- this is also called SYSTEM MISSING data). In this example, after clicking on the ... button in the Missing cell, I declared "9", "99", and "999" all to be treated by SPSS as missing (i.e., these values will be ignored)
  41. 41. Columns The columns property tells SPSS how wide the column should be for each variable. Don't confuse this one with width, which indicates how many digits of the number will be displayed. The column size indicates how much space is allocated rather than the degree to which it is filled. Align The alignment property indicates whether the information in the Data View should be left-justified, right- justified, or centered
  42. 42. Measure The Measure property indicates the level of measurement. Since SPSS does not differentiate between interval and ratio levels of measurement, both of these quantitative variable types are lumped together as "scale". Nominal and ordinal levels of measurement, however, are differentiated
  44. 44. Let we have data set with different variables and we need to enter in SPSS, below is set of variables and data set, this file is named as “bp” in dataset Example
  45. 45. Data Set: Professor Christopher conducted a study on subjects; the variable description is as with data Variable Description Sjcode ubject Code Sex Subject sex (0 = female, 1= male) Age Subject age Height Height in inches Weight weight, in pound Race Subject Race (1=Amer, 2= Asian, 3= black, 4= Hispanic, 5= white, 9= none of above) Med Taking prescription medication (0= No, 1= Yes) Smoke Does subject smoke?

  47. 47. Entering data into data editor In this lesson our goal is only, how to enter, save, and edit data (the data sheet given above). The first step in entering the data into data editor is to define all the variables. Creating a variable requires us to name it, specify the type of data (nominal, ordinal, Scale) and assign label to the variables and data values if needed. •Move the cursor to the bottom of the data editor, named as variable view and click it, a different grid appears as •Move the cursor into first empty cell in row 1 (under name) here type sjcode, then press enter •When the cursor moves to the Type column , a small grey button marked with three dots will appear, click on it you see this dialog box, numeric is default variable type, click ok.
  48. 48. Note that the Measure column (far right column) be put on scale, because you took numeric as variable type, In SPSS, each variable carry a descriptive label to help identify its meaning. To add label, here is procedure: •Move the cursor into the label column and type Subject Code. This complete the definition of first column. •Now lets creats a varable to represent sex, move the fisrt colume of row 2, and name the variable sex. •Because sex is categorical (qualitative ) variable and we are going to represent it numerically ( for data analysis purpose, because SPSS only entertains quantitative variable). Sinse numeric is the default in type column, we shall skip it and go to width taking width as per our requirement, in decimal column reduce from 2 to 0 •Label this variable as subject sex •Now we can assign text label to our coded values ( as discussed previously). In the values column click the grey box with three dots. A box will open as below
  49. 49. Type “0” in value box and type Female in the value label box.
  50. 50. Then click add Now type 1 in Value and Male in Label, click add and the click OK. In similar way we will add all the variables, the variable view window will be seen as
  51. 51. Now Switch to data view by clicking the appropriate tab in the lower left of screen.  Move the cursor to the first cell below the sjcode, and type 3, and then press Enter. In the next cell type 4, when you completed the subject code, move to the tope cell under sex, type “0” for female and “1” for male and go on. When you are done all, the data editor should look as On clicking the third button (named Value label) at left most you will see the screen as below
  52. 52. Saving the data file It is wise to save all your work in a disk file. To save a file, click on file menu, choose save as …, then next to file name, where type BP, then click save.
  53. 53. Editing the data file/value To edit any value, just to open the data file and click edit menu, and select the case or variable which is required for editing. Quitting SPSS When you have completed your work, it is important to exit the program propoerly. Go to file menu, then click on Exit , generally you will see a message asking if you wish to save changes. Since we saved every thing earlier, click No.
  54. 54. Here we discuss the issues like, transform, select, split, compute new variables, re-coding of data, merging files, sorting, transpose, weighted cases File management
  55. 55. This tool allows you to rearrange the data Open file data sort cases select variable then ok Sorting data
  56. 56. If some values are missing in data/variables that can be replaced by different methods, if variable is categorical then the value is replaced by the researcher on his/her personal experience, but the variable is continuous, SPSS will help using the Replace missing value command. Open file, and investigate any missing value using sort command, Replacing missing values
  57. 57. Then go to transform tool replace missing value using option Cont………
  58. 58. Sometimes a new variable is needed on the basis of current/existing variable or set of variables. The producer is as Menu transform compute variable ….. Insert target value and write desired operation in target expression like square, log ect. Creating Variables
  59. 59. Open file “student” , convert weight into Kg then fiend BMI of students. 1 Kg = 2.20462 Lb and 1M = 39.3701 and find BMI= weight/(height)2 Compare this BMI with this BMI =weight in Lb/height in inch x703 Activity
  60. 60. If the researcher is interested to re-code the data as you want to recode 1 5 or wants to make numerical data into groups , then we use re-code tool. Open the data file. From the menus choose: Transform | Recode | Into Different Variables... Following Recode into Different Variables Dialog box appears. Re-coding
  61. 61. Select the variable you want to recode. For this example select AAA, and click the right arrow button (►) to move the variable into the Input Variable > Output Variable box, following sign appears in this box: AAA >? In the Output Variable group, enter an output variable name (e.g. AA1) in the Name box, and you may label it as Stillbirth Rate Category [optional] for new variable and click change. Up to now, the dialog box looks as under:
  62. 62. Click Old and New Values... tab following dialog box appears, and specify how to recode values In the old value group, select the 5th choice then put 24 in the lowest through box.. In the value box under new value group input 1.
  63. 63. Click Add tab. Similarly, for the closed class interval like 25-29, select the 4th choice in the old value group then put 25 (selection of 4th choice in each case) till the time when you input 5 in the New Value through 29 and in the value under new value input 2, then click Add tab. Repeat this process . Now for the highest open class, select the 6th choice in the Old Value group then put 45 in the through highest box. In the Value box under New Value group input 6, then click Add tab. The final shape looks as under. Click Continue and then OK. The XYZ-SPSS Data Editor containing two variables viz. AAA and AA1t looks as under, one in Variable View and other in Data View.
  64. 64. Specify Value Labels Make the Data Editor the active window. If the data view is displayed, double-click the variable name at the top of the column in the data view or click the Variable View tab. Click the button in the values cell for the variable that you want to define. For each value, enter the value and a label (the one as seen below). Click Add to enter the value label, at last click OK.
  65. 65. For above activity make grouping of BMI as Underweight < 18.5 Normal 18.5 – 22.9 Overweight > 22.9 Also make output of groups Activity
  66. 66. This tool is used to analysis data for sub-group or a specific group like mean of respondent whose weight is above 85 Kg Open file, select data at MENU bar, select cases , click on if and write your option for selection , for example select male in BP file as gender=1 Select cases
  67. 67. Select male cases in “bp” file also female whose age is more than 50 years Activity
  68. 68. Two file may be merged either by variables or by case. Let we have 1000 respondents whose has six variables. If two data entry operators are completing this task. They can do this task in two ways (1) divide the cases to complete (2) divide the number of variables Merging file
  69. 69. File can be split into two or three categories, go to menu then data then select split file and then perform operation Split file
  70. 70. Data analysis
  71. 71. BASIC STRATEGY The following strategy is adopted to analyze the data • Description , counting, Proportion •Prediction, relationship, Association •Comparing , estimation (95% confidence interval)
