SPSS now available as an export option

You can now export data for import into SPSS.  This complements the existing formats of:

  1. xls
  2. csv
  3. kml
  4. shape
  5. Stata
  6. Openstreetmap

On the Smap server go to the analysis module and select “Export”, then select SPSS as the format. A Zip will be downloaded containing a CSV file for the data and an SPS file for the variable names.

Within SPSS import the CSV data file. Then load the variable names by selecting:

File > Open > Syntax

Then select:

“Run All”

Any suggestions on improvements to the information that is written to the SPS syntax file would be gratefully accepted.
