Program Syntax Files and Analysis Outputs

A necessary adjunct to the datasets are the program control commands (i.e., syntax) that specify each of the statistical analyses.  While most software programs today provide a "user-friendly interface" with "drop-down menus" for specifying the program commands, all programs will also function through what are known as "syntax" files which contain the commands in text form.

 

The syntax files allow for the precise specification necessary to replicate the analyses in the text given the wide number of options for each technique.  While many researchers today may prefer the "drop-down" menus for program specification, the syntax files provide a simple illustration to the program options for each technique.

 

We have also provided copies of the outputs so that users not able to actually execute the analyses will be able to examine actual outputs.  These are SPSS outputs except for the SEM (structural equation modeling) analyses which use LISREL and AMOS.  All outputs are in PDF format.
