Case Study Using Analysis of Variance

In this case study video, Analysis of Variance (ANOVA) is used to assess whether average student rent difffers by type of accommodation.
The video was scripted by John Marriott (Royal Statistical Society Centre for Statistical Education) and presented by Dr Alun Owen (Loughborough University) and Steve Joiner and Nick Blenkin (both Coventry University).
There is also an accompanying video resource listed with this case study which looks at the Problem Solving Approach (PSA) that should be used to handle this type of problem.

Change the coding of a variable using 'Recode into same variable' in SPSS

This video explains how to change the coding of a categorical variable in SPSS using the 'Recode into same variable' option. This replaces the existing data with the new coding rather than creating a new variable.
