SPSS MSc Research

#1
Hi,

My research partner and I are currently carrying out some quantitative research and are struggling to use SPSS as we a new to the program...

We've completed a fairly large-scale questionaire and have successfully collected our 430 responses, from 1600 questionnaires distributed, and have managed to upload and code our results into SPSS.

The research compares the environmental attitudes of the respondents with their environmental actions using a Likert scale (1-5). We are trying to analyse whether a correlation exist between the two variables but are unsure how to do this in SPSS or what techniques would be best to use. We have asked 33 questions regarding actions and 13 questions asking about attitudes towards the environment.

Any advise or help would be greatly appreciated.

Many people overlook the case studies included with the software. Take a look at Help > Case Studies for quick introductions to each of the statistical procedures. You might want to start with crosstabs and correlation.

We are trying to analyse whether a correlation exist between the two variables
Does this mean you want to correlate all13 attitudes
with all 33 actions = 429 correlations?

Or do you want to find out whether the 13 attitudes
jointly predict the 33 actions = 33 multiple regression
analyses?

Or will some of the actions and/or some of the attitudes
be aggregated/summarized before you want to analyse
associations?

Kind regards
