Join IBM SPSS Software and Data Science Central for an overview of how to extend IBM SPSS Statistics with R, Python and Spark to analyze data from a range of sources.
We all know that SPSS Statistics can import data from a wide variety of sources, but what about importing data from social media sites such as Facebook? Turns out you can do that too with a relatively simple extension that is implemented in R and makes use of the Rfacebook package.
Check out the new version of the Programming and Data Management book (for SPSS Statistics 24). The book covers data management using the IBM SPSS Statistics command language, programming with IBM SPSS Statistics and Python or R, IBM SPSS Statistics extension commands, and IBM SPSS Statistics for SAS programmers.
Earlier this week, we released the new versions of SPSS Statistics (version 24) and SPSS Modeler (version 18). With the new product release we also have a new version of R Essentials available for both products. Learn where to find R Essentials for Statistics and Modeler on GitHub and how to install.
Please join us on May 26th, 2015 at 9am PDT for our latest Data Science Central Webinar Event: 7 Reasons to combine SPSS Statistics and R sponsored by IBM.
For a project I have been estimating group based trajectory models for counts of crime at micro places. Synonymous with the trajectory models David Weisburd and colleagues estimated for street segments in Seattle. Here I will show how using SPSS and the R package crimCV one can estimate similar group based trajectory models.
Scatterplots with discrete variables and many observations take some touches beyond the defaults to make them useful. Consider the case of a categorical outcome that can only take two values, 0 and 1. What happens when we plot this data against a continuous covariate with my default chart template in SPSS? Oh boy, that is...
I figured I would share some of the scripts I have been recently working on to produce a set of figures on a regular basis for reports. SPSS GGRAPH can not be directly parameterized within macro’s (at least without a lot of work – see a counter example of Marta Garcia-Granero’s macro for Kalbfleisch-Prentice 95%CI...
