Abstract : This study showed that a set of procedures could be written and combined into a multivariate data analysis package that will run on a microcomputer. This package can be used as a teaching aid in the classroom or microcomputer center and as a research tool for users to do a 'ball-park' analysis of a data base. Included in the package are procedures to handle data base definition and modification, Factor analysis, and Canoncial Correlation analysis. The PASCAL Statistical Procedure Package (PSPP) was written on an Apple IIe microcomputer using the Apple PASCAL language and operating system. It will output to a printer in a 132 character per line format. If an on-line printer is only capable of 80 characters per line, wrap-around will occur. The package is composed of 4 top-level procedures stored in Regular Units and 163 library procedures stored in 13 Intrinsic Units. Units are Apple PASCAL structures that allow for program segmentation. (Author)
