The Application of SPSS in Statistical Analysis Project—A Study of the Inheritance of Chinese Traditional Shadow Play in Schools

Abstract

Chinese traditional shadow play has been selected into the List of Intangible Cultural Heritage in 2011. Yet, reflecting abundant national cultural values, such traditional art form is degenerating and fading out from people’s sight. As the earliest statistical analysis software, Statistical Package for the Social Science (SPSS) is comprehensive in analyzing and managing statistical data. This study explores the application of SPSS in minimizing the workload of researchers while raising the validity of data in supporting the analysis of the survey data which reflected the inheritance and development of Chinese traditional shadow play in schools.
