A statistical procedure is not like a sausage: you want to know its contents; you want to know the types of questions it can be used to answer and the types of data for which it is appropriate. The goal of the SPSS 15.0 Advanced Statistical Procedures Companion is to provide you with background information and examples for statistical procedures in the SPSS Advanced and Regression Models modules. It aims to make it less likely that you will succumb to the siren song of melodic statistical procedure names and unleash a disastrous assault on a mutely suffering data file.

For those whose Lithuanian is rusty:
"Marija" is pronounced "Maria," not "Mar-eye-ja."
"Norušis" is pronounced "Norooshis," not "Neurosis."
