pspp-0.8.4 released [stable]


I'm very pleased to announce the release of a new version of GNU PSPP.
PSPP is a program for statistical analysis of sampled data.  It is a
free replacement for the proprietary program SPSS.

Here are the compressed sources and a GPG detached signature[*]:
  ftp://ftp.gnu.org/gnu/pspp/pspp-0.8.4.tar.gz
  ftp://ftp.gnu.org/gnu/pspp/pspp-0.8.4.tar.gz.sig

Use a mirror for higher download bandwidth:
  http://www.gnu.org/order/ftp.html

[*] Use a .sig file to verify that the corresponding file (without the
.sig suffix) is intact.  First, be sure to download both the .sig file
and the corresponding tarball.  Then, run a command like this:

  gpg --verify pspp-0.8.4.tar.gz.sig

If that command fails because you don't have the required public key,
then run this command to import it:

  gpg --keyserver keys.gnupg.net --recv-keys C6648E90

and rerun the 'gpg --verify' command.

Changes from 0.8.3 to 0.8.4:

 * Formatting of SYSFILE INFO output was made easier to read.

 * Bug fixes, including the following notable ones:

(unknown)

I am using PSPP version 08.3.  I have used SPSS at a university and on that program I can go to data/select cases/ and a drop down box allows me to pick a range of information from a particular column and select that....for example if I want to select only certain ages from a group (ages 13-20 from a column of ages 5-55) I can do that and it only selects those ages.  Is there a way to do that in PSPP?  I hope I am being clear.  I am just learning this program and am not all that familiar with the computer language.  I am not sure if this is a bug of some sort or the way the program is set up.

Thank you

Change language of PSPP

Hi!

How do I change the language of PSPP? From English into Portuguese, for example.


Grateful,


Wesley Oliveira.

PSPP bug in 8.3

Greeting. There is a bug in PSPP 8.3 for Windows.  The dataset field we found this on is a file of the 50 states and District of Columbia--the problem is the variable regionname, which is an alphanumeric. In running a frequency distribution on a variable (Analyze>Descriptive Statistics>Frequencies), the output does not aggregate the table into four rows like it should--instead, each state is its own row.


The bug is not present in version 8.2.


I have been experimenting with this software in an undergrad stats class.  The bug was a bit embarrassing. I have told them to delete version 8.3 and replace it with 8.2.

Re: pspp removed from Debian

Hi,

i work on an updated debian package for the 0.8.3 tarball. This is the first time for me, so
it will probably not work right away… What I have done so far:

- The package builds on wheezy. debuild has the following lintian output:

Now running lintian...
W: pspp source: diff-contains-substvars debian/substvars
W: pspp source: newer-standards-version 3.9.5 (current is 3.9.4)
W: pspp: hardening-no-fortify-functions usr/bin/pspp
W: pspp: hardening-no-fortify-functions usr/bin/psppire
W: pspp: postinst-has-useless-call-to-ldconfig
W: pspp: postrm-has-useless-call-to-ldconfig
Finished running lintian.

- All tests pass

## ------------- ##
## Test results. ##
## ------------- ##

All 1039 tests were successful.

- I can install the package under my wheezy installation and psppire starts. 

- The package builds via pbuilder for sid

Now I need some help how to make the package available. I guess I need an uploader… 

Regards

Friedrich

MEANS TABLE output

Hi,
I try to get the means of a dependent numerical variable TRUST under the
simultaneous control of two independent non-numerical variables (factors)
named ETHNIC and GENERATION :
MEANS TABLES =  TRUST by ethnic by generation/cell mean.

The manual shows that the means procedure can create MEANS tables with two
entries, but my syntax does not work: I only get two separate tables, one
for each independent variable.

I use PSPP 0.8.3 under Windows.

Any ideas ?
TIA

keyboard short cuts for executing syntax

Using PSPP 0.8.2 and now 0.8.3 on windows to execute syntax the only
keyboard short cut available is ctrl-R for executing the line of syntax
where the cursor is currently situated.

Are there any other short cuts available that I did not find, for instance
Execute selection ?

TIA

download site for pspp


I hope I am e-mailing/posting to  the correct address for the pspp 
users list which I got from  http://pspp.awardspace.com/
I also hope that I am phrasing this request correctly as am not 
familiar with the etiquette.
Appologies if I get anything wrong.

I would very much like to try out a copy of pspp to run on a windows 
7,  64 bit box . It sounds to be a really useful package.
  I found the downloads page at http://pspp.awardspace.com/  but 
could only see links to sourceforge.

Given recent concerns about malware/adware being bundled with 
downloads from sourceforge, I did not feel comfortable/safe with 
downloading a copy from there. (for example GNU's  GIMP no longer 
uses sourceforge for the 
installers

http://www.theregister.co.uk/2013/11/08/gimp_dumps_sourceforge_over_dodgy_ads_and_installer/, 
and comments on wikipedia 
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/SourceForge    seem to indicate that, 
sadly, sourceforge is no longer trustworthy repository) .

Are there any download sites for pspp (windows 7 64bit or 32bit ) 
[other than sourceforge], which do not risk the installers having 
malware/adware bundled with them?
Unfortunately I do not have the experience/confidence/software to 
build an installer for windows from the source code.

Advice would be most welcome.
Many thanks in anticipation, Sandy

linear regression

Dear PSPP-Users,

I am having trouble with the linear regression command.

Using the following syntax works fine:
REGRESSION
	/VARIABLES= var1
	/DEPENDENT=	var2
	/STATISTICS=COEFF R ANOVA
	/SAVE= PRED RESID.

PSPP creates the two new variables as expected. However, if I leave out either PRED or RESID (and keep the
other-one in), PSPP will crash. I tried this across several data sets.

I am using PSPP 0.8.3 on Win7.

Best regards,
Bob.

Hi,

There is no visualisation in PSPP.
Which programs/applications do you use to create diagrams
a) for analysis with
- nominal,
- ordinal and
- numeric (scale) data
and
b) for presentation with
- nominal,
- ordinal and
- numeric (scale) data
?
TIA
