  1. What are the system requirements for SPSS 26?

  2. Bryan Southerland May 29, 2019

    I currently have SPSS Grad Pack 25 Premium and the license is good until January 2020. I would prefer not to purchase a new version. What are my options for upgrading?

  3. So no improvements from SPSS 25 on plotting design and graphics?

  4. Where did the graphboard template chooser go? There are graphs that are no longer available in the Visualize option unless they are somewhere else (e.g., I’m looking for clustered boxplot). Please advise.

  5. Do you know if there are any textbooks that are geared toward teaching with the new interface?

  6. Mario Gonzalez de la Parra June 20, 2019

    The newest version still has only one approximation for denominator degrees of freedom (Satterthwaite) or it has more choices (containment, Kenward-Roger, etc.) for rhe MXED command?

  7. Is this the full list of new features in v26? If not, where can one get a straightforward list of all the new features in v26? Thanks.

    We purchased concurrent and stand alone authorization codes for v25 and v26 SPSS Statistics Premium through ORION. While I have the codes, I was under the impression that the downloads would still be available via Passport Advantage. Where would I obtain V26?

  13. Hi! I have a question about ROC Analysis. What are the differences between ROC Curve and ROC analysis?, I think that both are the same. ROC Analysis does the same as ROC Curve a but adding more functions. Why does the Statistics have a ROC Curve?

  14. Aaron Cherniak October 10, 2019

  15. Which extension can I use with SPSS 26 for the R PlugIn intetgration? It keeps saying it’s failing and I can’t figure it out!!

  16. Hi,
    I am not able to do the Little’s MCAR test in the Grad Pack of version 26 nor can I follow the videos on MI for missing values. The steps must be different.
