    Editors' review

    IBM SPSS Statistics for Mac offers in-depth analysis of data and provides suggestions and reports based on the given criteria. This premium product comes with a free trial and features extremely powerful data analysis tools. On the downside, the user interface is poorly designed, with an overabundance of options, which may overwhelm the casual user.

    Pros

    Powerful capabilities: After you input your variables into IBM SPSS Statistics for Mac, you can perform complex analysis, including actions such as changing all variables to meet a certain goal, or in the case of direct marketing, identify clients who are most likely to buy your product or the general geographic area that sees the most purchases. Other analysis types include correlation, forecast, regression, and classification in clusters.

    Add-ons support: The app's core functionality is enhanced by add-ons such as text analysis for surveys and data collection.

    Excellent output options: When it comes to saving your work, you can either export your entire database, or save the data, itself, as one of more than 30 formats, including Microsoft Excel.

    Cons

    Lengthy setup: In order to install IBM SPSS Statistics for Mac, you need to register and create your own IBM ID and install Java and Python.

    Bottom Line

    If you run a company and need software to help you make the most informed decisions, a product like IBM SPSS Statistics for Mac can be worth its weight in gold. Although it may be overwhelming at first, the app easily handles multivariable decisions. If, on the other hand, you don't need this much analytical potential, a more basic offering like Excel's Solver might be a better fit.

    Editors' note: This is a review of the trial version of IBM SPSS Statistics for Mac 19.

      "SPSS ....Horrendous!!!"

      April 01, 2014   |   By Adonotsendmejunk

      Version: IBM SPSS Statistics 19

      Pros

      Searched hard, could not find any, (apologies to any prospective enthusiasts of SPSS).

      Cons

      It had been cobbled together by IBM and other associate corporates to make it sellable for other corporates and individual customers (for example universities, students etc). The ******* thing was originally designed to work on a main-fraim in the 1970's. It was never designed to work on individual computers (they have never even existed at the time). So if any of you poor sods like me struggle to make sense of this pile of s*, please let me know...we might just make sense of it within the next 40 years, or alternatively hand it back to IBM in the Democratic Republic of America of USA, for further improvement?!

      Summary

      Stay away!!! Will not help your research, whatever you r studying!

      "Wouldn't run IBM ruined software. Worst install ever."

      August 14, 2011   |   By RASmythe

      Version: IBM SPSS Statistics 19

      Pros

      OK if you live in an enterprise environment and can jump through about 3 hours of hurdles it's amazingly powerful.

      Forget it if you are a personal user.

      Cons

      SPSS is ruined. Never worked. I have used SPSS since version 14. It IS powerful but the install is bad it's not even funny. Install instructions had more legal verbage than instructions.
      Default use is IBM cloud, extra steps for personal use.

      Summary

      It's powerful if you can get it to work.

      Don't even try unless in an enterprise environment

      IBM ruined it.

      "Wouldn't run."

      December 08, 2010   |   By ykamo

      Version: IBM SPSS Statistics 19

      Pros

      It's a basic package, easy to use, particularly for novices.

      Cons

      This temporary version WOULDN'T run on my Mac after spending 20 minutes and taking up 760mb! They charge horrendous amount for a software ($250 license A YEAR). Something go to be done with how they distribute.
