Help needed.

Currently I am writing my master thesis about Merger and Acquisitions

(M&A) and in this context I am using SPSS for a Logistic regression.

---- snip a lot of detail ----

It seems to work, however with normal linear regressions you have the

option to save the coefficient statistics in a separate file and this

can be used to make histograms. I want to make histograms of the

parameter estimates of the 100 sample files. How can I do this with

SPSS?

I hope that somebody can help me.

Questions about SPSS should go to comp.soft-sys.stat.spss. You're more likely to get help there.

If you have a recent enough version of SPSS, you can use the Output Management System (OMS) to a file any output that would ordinarily appear in a pivot table in the output window. Here's an example that sends the table of coefficients from logistic regression to an SPSS data file.

OMS

/SELECT TABLES

/IF COMMANDS = ['Logistic Regression']

SUBTYPES = ['Variables in the Equation']

/DESTINATION FORMAT = SAV NUMBERED = model viewer = no

OUTFILE = "C:\Path\regression coefficients.sav".

Each time you run a logistic regression, the table of coefficients will be appended to that file, until you issue a command to terminate OMS (OMSend).

Then it's a simple matter of opening the file of coefficients, and doing a bit of data management to get what you need.
