**Sample text**

You might choose to leave a blank column between each set of items. You may also notice that all of the numbers line up in each of the columns. This is because I have used a fixed font (in this example, I have used a font called Courier New). If you use a proportional font (for example, Times New Roman), your data will be much harder to see. As I mentioned earlier, this type of data file (in which all the rows and columns line up) is called a fixed-length flat file. ” As an alternative, you may use a form of data entry that does not require the data to line up in columns.

First, note that the window is divided into two panes. The pane on the left shows the contents of the SPSS output in outline form. ” Following the Output is the “Log,” which contains the commands that SPSS executed to run the analysis. Don’t worry if you do not see the log in your output, as that simply means that the option to display the log in the SPSS Viewer has not been selected for your program (however, you may change that option if you wish). ” Within the descriptive analysis is a “Title,” “Notes (which have been hidden),” and the “Descriptive Statistics” themselves.

Thus, by using the outline on the left, you can easily navigate through the output to see the portion in which you are interested. This is particularly helpful when the output is lengthy, in that it is easy to go directly to any portion of the output without having to scroll through the entire output searching for the portion that you want. Now let’s take a look at the results of the analysis. In the first column of the results, SPSS informs us which variables have been analyzed. In the next column, we see the number of cases that were used in the analysis (since there were no missing data for either variable, all 50 cases have been used in the analyses).
