I work for a govt agency.  They may not come up with money, but I could put an argument that as they are currently paying about $2000 per year for an SPSS licence a proportion of that may be a good investment.


Actually, I don’t like the version of CTABLES spss currently has.  I used to use it on v10 SPSS in about 1990 and found it relatively intuitive to use. I haven’t quite got into the same comfort zone I used to be in back then as with the current version.   I don’t know why it would have been changed.  Rather than PSPP simply copying SPSS perhaps it could be improved.

So maybe we can motivate Ben a little. I would think about a kickstarter campaign. I'd put in 500USD for a full CTABLES to get that off the ground. I think that would also clear the way for using MRSETS in an easy way.

@Ben: would money help to motivate you?

SPSS Tables was the prime reason I purchased SPSS.  To run reports that Tables can do so nicely.

A representative of SPSS said on the SPSS list some time ago that the CTables module is the most sold module , besides the basic one.

As other free or open source stats programmes don't offer this opportunity it would really increase the attractivity of PSPP.
