Statistical analysis software free to download: Nvivo, SPSS, Minitab, OxMetrics

You can download the statistical analysis software below from the Middlesex University download server or link to it as indictated. 

We have created a Lynda.com playlist of courses to teach you how to use Nvivo, SPSS, Minitab and SurveyMonkey.

Nvivo allows a researcher to work with rich information, where deep levels of analysis on both small and large volumes of data are required. "It removes .. tasks associated with analysis, like classifying, sorting and arranging information, so you have more time to explore trends, build and test theories and ultimately arrive at answers to questions."  It is often used for analyzing qualitative data from interviews.

SPSS:  "Customers use SPSS to anticipate change, manage both daily operations and special initiatives more effectively, and realize positive, measurable benefits."

  • The  Middlesex University download server has SPSS PC and Mac versions.
  • A training course for SPSS can be found on Lynda.com.

LaTeX - document preparation

LaTeX, which is pronounced «Lah-tech» or «Lay-tech» (to rhyme with «blech» or «Bertolt Brecht»), is a document preparation system for high-quality typesetting. It is most often used for medium-to-large technical or scientific documents but it can be used for almost any form of publishing.
