6 Simplest Steps on How to Perform Nominal Frequency Data Analysis Using SPSS

Today I am going to share some ideas about the data analysis using SPSS for the descriptive statistic. The important items to remember is that you need to understand what is nominal data?  Nominal data can be described as data without absolute values or non-numerical data or sometimes we call it also as categorical data. Example of this data will be the color of the car whether it is red, yellow, blue or green. All of this attribute consider as non-numeric data. For the analysis wise, we are going to tabulate this data using simple count and adding with percentage the count of the X over the denominator (group) of the specific item that we tabulate.

 

To illustrate the idea of the data analysis using SPSS for nominal measurement, we first need to prepare the data as describe in the previous study on my workshop and online learning material. Then we are going to use the data to analyze as indicate in our primary specific objectives. Aimed of the study for this example can be illustrated as follows:

Title: Cross-sectional study of learning skill and academic performance among health science students

General Objective: identify the factor that influences the learning skill on academic performance among health students

Specific Objective

  1. Study the demographic
  2. To compare the learning skills between different of demographic
  3. To compare the academic performance between different  of demographics
  4. To understand the influence factors contribute to the academic performance among students

The application of this analysis was very useful to enable researcher and users to understand the demographic or characteristic of your respondents. Steps for the descriptive statistic for nominal data shown in below Figures. To obtain the data, please click this link. You can also learn about how to collect the data as indicated below using Google Drive to minimize the error for data analysis in your research.
