Bivariate analysis is a statistical analysis which deals with two variables and find the relationship between the variables. We can perform bivariate analysis using SPSS, Stata and other statistical software very easily.
What is bivariate analysis?
- Correlation Coefficients: The coefficient shows the relationship between two variables. When the correlation coefficient is zero then this means that the variables are not related. If the correlation coefficient is a positive or a negative 1 then this means that the variables are perfectly correlated.
- Regression Analysis: It is the most widely used technique to find the bivariate relationship of two variables. It also helps to find the correlation coefficient.
- Scatter plots: This gives an idea of the patterns that can be formed using the two variables.
Bivariate analysis using SPSS
1. First we have to go to–
2. Now we can see two box named Row and Column and we have to enter one variable into Row box and another into column box and click on statistics.
|Row and column box|
3. In statistics we have to select chi-square and click on continue.
4. Finally we have to click on OK and then we the see the output window.

- A small -value (typically ≤ 0.05) indicates strong evidence against the null hypothesis, so we reject the null hypothesis.
- A large-value (> 0.05) indicates weak evidence against the null hypothesis, so we fail to reject the null hypothesis.
- -values very close to the cutoff (0.05) are considered to be marginal.
