from my experience the difficulty ist rather to install and manage macports as this requires to install
Apple XCode which requires an apple developer access, then the macports software. I guess
if you can install macports, then installing pspp is not the issue anymore. Because then
you know what it means to open the terminal and type

sudo port install pspp 

and possibly

sudo port search pspp
sudo port selfupdate
sudo port upgrade

People who have problems to install packages which are no signed by copying to the desktop and
explicitly doing right-mouse and „open“ will probably not be able to install macports.

Do you have an idea why so many users have trouble downloading and

It's hard to say: PSPP is a well-behaved package from what I've seen.

Today's email was about a user's apprehension of upgrading their OS; one
could just as well have asked MacPorts if it runs on the new OS.

Since OS X began requiring software to be signed by a developer account,
I've simply turned people to installing via MacPorts instead of using an
installer. This has been the case for several OS versions now.
