Statistical Analysis

GraphPad Prism – Combines scientific graphing, comprehensive curve fitting (nonlinear regression), understandable statistics, and data organisation. While it won’t replace a heavy-duty statistics program, Prism lets you easily perform basic statistical tests commonly used by laboratory and clinical researchers. [Need to purchase]

GenStat – Gen Stat is a data analysis tool used to manage and illustrate your data, summarize and compare, model relationships, design investigations and of analyse your experiments from the simplest of ANOVA’s right through to the most complex REML. [Need to purchase]

Mathematica – Mathematica is a computational software program used in scientific, engineering, and mathematical fields and other areas of technical computing. [Need to purchase]

SAS – SAS (Statistical Analysis System) is an analytical, data manipulation application with reporting capabilities. It provides tools to master the four data-driven tasks common to virtually any application: data access, management, analysis and presentation—all within a powerful applications development environment. [Need to purchase]

SPSS and AMOS – One of the statistics packages made available by the University, SPSS provides you with a broad range of capabilities for the entire analytical process. With SPSS, you can generate decision-making information quickly using powerful statistics, understand and effectively present your results with high-quality tabular and graphical output, and share your results with others using a variety of reporting methods, including secure Web publishing. Results from your data analysis enable you to make smarter decisions more quickly by uncovering key facts, patterns, and trends. The AMOS application provides you with structural equation modelling (SEM) software, which allows you to create more realistic models than if you used standard multivariate statistics or multiple regression models alone. [Please email to to get the authorization code for this software]

JASP – An open-source statistical analysis software package that features popular classical analysis tools such as ANOVA and regression, but also contains their Bayesian counterparts. It’s designed to be easy to use with a spreadsheet layout and a drag-and-drop interface, very similar to SPSS. [Free]
