Comparison of Which Analyses Are Available in SPSS and jamovi¶
SPSS  jamovi 

Already at first glance, it becomes clear that jamovi currently has fewer
features than SPSS. BUT:
(1) There is a (ever increasing) made available via modules (press the “+”
sign in the right upper corner of the jamovi window to add them).
(2) The features implemented already cover “standard” needs (90% of the
most frequently used analyses in psychology).
Feel free to check out which modules are available: There is also quite a
wealth of modules covering functions that are not available in SPSS but
very useful (e.g., for metaanalyses, structural equation models, etc.).
If you are willing to use some R code (e.g., in conjunction with the
jamovimodule Rj) then you can (most presumably) do every analysis you
can imagine.

[1]  Whereas SPSS puts both methods into one procedure (FACTOR ) makes jamovi a conceptual difference between Principal Component Analysis aiming at
data reduction (i.e., reducing the number of dimension that are required to describe the data) and Exploratory Factor Analysis aiming at extracting
underlying latent variables.
