SPSS Tutorial #4: Conducting a One-Way ANOVA


Struggling to understand how to use SPSS for your analysis?

No worries my friend, my students have the exact same problem every semester.

So I decided to develop a series of tutorial videos to help you run your analysis. Here, we’ll discuss a ONE-WAY ANOVA.

What is a One-Way ANOVA?

A One-Way ANOVA (Analysis of Variance) is a test that allows us to identify differences between THREE OR MORE groups of means, when you have only ONE independent variable.

This is what the “One-Way” stands for: The number of independent variables involved.

For example:

  • When you would like to compare the perception of consumers towards three or more brands/products to identify which brand/product is perceived most positively.
  • When you compare the perception of consumers in three or more different cities. to identify if there are any statistical difference among them.

Got it?

Also, do not forget to check other available resources on the statistics support section. There is more content available there to help you!
