SPSS 26 Statistical Software Information

The Statistical Package for the Social Sciences (SPSS) comprises an integrated series of computer programs which enables users to read data from questionnaire surveys and other sources (e.g., medical and administrative records) to manipulate data in various ways to produce a wide range of statistical analyses or reports, complete with supporting documentation.

Free to install on your U of R provided computer (for Faculty and Staff only) by going Start >> All Programs >> Micro Focus ZenWorks >> ZenWorks Application Window >> Click 'SPSS 26 Stats'.

It may take a few minutes to install, but it does not require an Administrator password. SPSS can only be installed on U of R owned equipment.

If you have any questions about installation please contact the IT Support Centre.

The University has an SPSS server that can accommodate a limited number of connections. There is no charge to install the software, however, the software cannot be used if the maximum number of users has been reached. To ensure access for other users, please exit SPSS when you are finished using the software.

Note: You must be on campus in order to use our SPSS licensing. If you require the use of SPSS off campus, you can do so by connecting to VPN first. There are also a limited number of commuter licenses available, which do not require VPN connection and can be used independently.

The IBM SPSS® statistical software is installed in most Computer Labs on the Regina campus which includes the Dr. John Archer Library.

  • Students: The license does not permit the University to provide Students with access to SPSS® from personal computers or laptops. Therefore, students (including those who live in Prince Albert, Saskatoon, or elsewhere in the province) requiring SPSS software may purchase it directly from IBM.
