Essentially, the program can create common statistical models, such as regression analysis, as well as Bayesian estimations on any type of source data. Information can be fed into the program via multiple types of containers, including DBFs, MDBs, XLS documents, and even properly formatted TXTs or CSVs. Chi-square tests and covariance calculations can be performed with just several mouse clicks and bootstrap analyses are also supported. However, a distinctive feature of this program is that it combines informative graphics with raw statistical power. Getting results across to an audience unfamiliar with Statistics has always been a burden for researchers and analysts. IBM SPSS Amos seeks to address this issue by providing users with basic, but adequate tools to create diagrams. These images can serve to explain correlations between variables, a fact equations are ill-equipped for. The ability to build structural equation models in a highly intuitive manner is one of the strong points of this tool. Another noteworthy aspect is its support for more advanced users, as the application can be run both with and without a GUI.
