**Learning Statistics with SPSS ***/ **DESCRIPTIVE STATISTICS*

## GRAPHICAL AND NUMERICAL SUMMARIES

[**Command Sequence: Graph/Legacy/Histogram**]

Note: Select **Variable** and check **Display Normal**
Curve box when at the **Histogram** window

[**Command Sequence: Analyze/Summarize/Frequencies**]

Note: At the** ***Frequencies* window select the variable(s); then
open the **Statistics** window and check the boxes under **Percentile**,
**Dispersion, Central Tendency**, and **Distribution**.

The outputs that you are about to see are for the **Salary** and **Experience**
(in years) of the five employees of **Table 2
(Exercises) **in the **SPSS/win primer**. My discussion of these
outputs is brief but nonetheless complete. Further explanations/implications of the
results will be given in class.
