STATISTICA, the universal statistical software par excellence! From data import to data management, up to graphical and statistical analysis, STATISTICA provides even in the basic version all the tools needed for sophisticated data analysis. The descriptive statistics include not only all common statistical key figures but also tests for outliers and normal distribution Scatter-, Q-Q- and box-plots are easily producible. STATISTICA comprises a variety of parametric and non-parametric tests on mean values (t-test), group comparisons (independent and paired t-test), equality of variances (Levene) and many more. By applying different modeling strategies (Step by Step), multiple linear regression models are configured, evaluated on the basis of quality criteria (R2), and interpreted using a variety of graphics. Additional packages allow to extend the functionality of STATISTICA to many specialized areas of statistics (data mining, text mining, etc.).

A particular advantage of STATISTICA in comparison to some other commercial or open-source products is its clear and easy to use interface, which is based on conventional spreadsheet programs. Thus, starting statisitcal analysis is easier by using STATISTICA. Furthermore, STATISTICA allows you to import and export many different file formats, which increases the practicality significantly.

**Arguments for STATISTICA:**

- Contains comprehensive functionality
- Functionality can be extended with modules
- Has an easy and clear user interface
- Allows the import and export of various data formats

## STATISTICA - Graphic Tools

STATISTICA includes analytic and exploratory graphs in addition to standard 2- and 3-dimensional graphs. Brushing actions (interactive labeling, marking, and data exclusion) allow for investigation of outliers and exploratory data analysis.

#### Efficient User Interface and Templates

The user interface can be customized, for example, for routine tasks. Quickly accessible tabs containing only the relevant options, more advanced tabs contain all the more secialized options. Furthermore STATISTICA gives you the oppurtinity to save your work at any point to continue later on (including all open windows, dialogs, etc.).

#### High-Value Graphics for Presentations

STATISTICA comes with more than 100 different 2D and 3D graphics and has a wealth of graphical tools. Additionally, the software provides hierarchical graph style libraries and supports connections to multimeda objects. Through Visual Basic and other supported programming languages, STATISTICA allows the creation and editing of high-quality custom graphics.

#### Efficient Datamanagement

Organize your documents (STATISTICA graphics, spreadsheets, Excel, Word, etc.) into highly manageable workbooks. With the tree structure you have a clear view on all of your documents within the workbook and can quickly adjust and edit them if needed. Outputs can be directly exported to Microsoft Word. Moreover STATISTICA supports outputs to PDF- and RTF-files and allows you to customize them by dragging objects with the mouse. Do you use the **STATISTICA Document Management System**? If so, then you can easily export and store all of your workouts there and manage them in a secured environment.

#### Virtually No System Limits

STATISTICA is a comprehensive system with virtually no limits: Create text values, variable names, labels, etc. without any limitation of characters. Analyze an unlimited number of variables and cases. Perform multiple analyzes simultaneously. With STATISTCA's powerful speed optimizations you can calculate terabytes of data.

### Fully Programmable

With STATISTICA, you do not just get a comprehensive software for data analysis but also a system that can be adapted completely. Thanks to the integration of Visual Basic you have the possibility to adjust almost any function, analysis, program feature, etc. accurately to your needs. Moreover STATISTICA supports HTML and .NET. The graphical option of STATISTICA are also accessible through programming, which opens up almost unlimited possibilities for creating highly customized graphics. Those custom graphics can be permanently integrated into the user interface (for example, by adding a button to the toolbar or the menu entry).
