PASW (formerly SPSS) is a computer program used for statistical analysis. Before 2009 it was called SPSS, but in 2009 it was re-branded as PASW (Predictive Analytics SoftWare).
The latest release is 18.0 (Win), 18.0 (Mac), and 18.0 (Linux). It has a proprietary license. SPSS (originally, Statistical Package for the Social Sciences) is among the most widely used programs for statistical analysis in social science. It is used by market researchers, health researchers, survey companies, government, education researchers, marketing organizations and others. In addition to statistical analysis, data management (case selection, file reshaping, creating derived data) and data documentation (a metadata dictionary is stored with the data) are features of the base software.
SJSU has a site license for SPSS and all SJSU Faculty, Staff and Students can use it. Install media and acivation codes are provided by the SJSU Help Desk to university students, faculty and staff when they verify their standing with the university. There may be a modest cost for the installation media. For more details contact the University Help Desk:
