You might also care to look at Rapid Miner.  It has been well reviewed in the Rexner surveys, appears to be widely used, has a huge range of data mining/machine learning functions, some of which are designed to analyse free-text data (which is the term which I use instead of the highly tendentious phrase “qualitative data”), and can be obtained either in a commercial or a freeware version.

Hello, I know, something like what you mentioned does not exist.

You should consider IBM, brought a series of specific software and it did work together on "SPSS" brand, which is specializing in market analysis.

If you look in depth PSPP's goal is to be a replacement for SPSS base (considering only the software in "SPSS dimensions"), that would be one software package for the 13 that constitute "SPSS dimensions".

From what I see, you look for something related to qualitative research and that not much opensource software. I recommend that you review the set of R packages ( or check some specific software in

It all depends on what you need, and should consider include PSPP can be useful for qualitative analysis (or analysis of surveys) if you have light or you want to get.

Asunto: Open source alternative for spss dimensions


Is there an open source alternative for spss dimensions? The thing is dimensions replaced quanvert (data analytical tool) in the 90's. Now, the option for researchers is to either stick to quanvert or move to dimensions which are both owned by SPSS. Is there any other option for analysing survey data?
