Yes, this is a file type used by the Complex Samples procedures. You can design a sample or analyze an existing dataset resulting from a complex sample design. In both cases, you create a plan file via the gui or syntax that describes the actual or intended design. This file is then used to draw the sample and/or to define the sample to the analysis procedures so that you don't have to respecify the sampling design every time you run an analysis.

Dear Listers,

In searching for a file using Windows search, I noticed in the Advanced Options that 'SPSS Analysis Plan' was listed as a file type. I've never heard of such a thing and when I searched the Help topics in SPSS, nothing came up. Does anyone have any idea what it is?
