This tutorial is a bit lacking at present! It will, in time (maybe), look at how to summarize data using measures of central tendency such as the mean, mode and median, and measures of dispersion such as variance, standard deviation and standard error. It will also look at confidence intervals. My books cover all of these topics beautifully by the way;-)


  • Two handouts we have already looked at in previous tutorials explore some of the graphing capabilities of IBM SPSS Statistics (access them here and here).
  • PDF Handout looking at obtaining the mean, mode, median, variance, standard error and other descriptive statistics in R.
