SPSS by IBM is probably one of the most common stats programs across campuses in psychology and other social science departments. It’s been incredibly useful for me and will likely continue to play a role in my research. It really is a great program to start learning statistics with and enables you to do some pretty powerful analysis with little more than point-and-click. Nonetheless it is quite expensive if your organization doesn’t provide it for you (Thank you U of C!) and to this day is rather clunky and prone the crash.
