    I am helping a friend with the data handling and statistics of research about nutrional knowledge in diabetic patients... I don't know if I should use Excel or SPSS for that..

    I am a good excel user and I know how to do most of the statistical test on it... I have limited experiece with SPSS but can learn it if it is really worth it...

    I wonder if anyone can give a quick comparison between SPSS and excel for statistical analysis... and does excell work as a spreadsheet as well with all the powerful tools of excel spreadsheet...

    the data that will be analysed is not complicated.. but rather big... it is questionnaire results... each questionnaire contains 90 multiple choice questions (each ranging from 4 -9 answers)... and we have like 150 questionnaires...

    So.. What are the strengths and weaknesses of SPSS? and is it worth learning?

    AMR, there is a dedicated Statistical package that our guys at work used alongside Excel called "MiniTab", that might be worth a look.
