Version: 29

SPSS (Statistical Package for the Social Sciences) Premium is a data management and analysis software. Modules for data analysis include descriptive statistics such as plots, frequencies, charts, and lists, as well as more complex statistical procedures like analysis of variance (ANOVA), factor analysis, cluster analysis, and categorical data analysis.

The current version of SPSS is installed in all labs and classrooms for the current academic year. 

SPSS may be used for:

  • Teaching and non-commercial academic research. Non-commercial academic research means research by degree seeking students and faculty members where (i) the results of such research are not intended primarily for the benefit of a third party; (ii) such results are made available to anyone without restriction on use, copying or further distribution; and (iii) any copy of any such result is furnished for no more than the cost of hosting, reproduction, and shipping.
  • Administrative research and other administrative and operational purposes on university-owned machines only.

Academic licenses for CHSS, CSE, CBE, and WCE faculty and staff are available at no charge.

Licenses for other faculty/staff and individuals requiring an administrative research license are $150. Please contact Software Services to obtain a license.

All licenses are renewable each June. 

This license also allows Work-at-Home benefits for licensed faculty, staff and students.


  1. A limited number of licenses for Amos (Windows only) are available.
