Statistical Packages Support Page

This list is intended to facilitate knowledge-sharing between faculty and staff at UWGB who actively use SAS or SPSS in their research.

If you have come to this page hoping to learn how to use either SAS or SPSS, you could participate in training programs offered by those vendors. You could also enroll in a UWGB course in which one of the packages is used, such as Introductory Statistics (MATH 260) or Social Science Statistics (Comm Sci 205).
