Statistics are essential when it comes to making decisions related to behavioral patterns based on the analysis, collection, study, postprocessing and classification of data. Nowadays, thanks to Big Data, it's a discipline that has become more and more important for which reason having decent software capable of helping us to understand and simplify the complexity of huge data volumes is a must.

A complete statistical analysis program

One of the resources that we can turn to is this Minitab, which comes along with a complete set of statistical calculation tools. It offers us the chance to draw up professional presentations mainly thanks to its user-friendly and customizable interface that makes it easier to work with stats.

A really complete statistical analysis software.

In Minitab, we can find all the following main features and functions to carry out statistical data analyses:

  • Assistant for the analysis of measurement systems, capacity and graphics systems and for hypothesis, regression, DOE and control chart tests.
  • Basic statistics: descriptive, Z-tests, one and two proportion tests, Poisson rate tests, correlation and co-variance tests, normality tests, atypical value tests, and goodness-of-fit test for Poisson.
  • Assistant for the creation of professional-looking charts: dispersion, matrix, bubbles, 3D contour and rotational, probability and distribution of probabilities...
  • Calculation of linear, binary logistics, ordinal, nominal, non-linear and Poisson regressions.
  • Function for the analysis of the variance: ANOVA, MANOVA, general linear model, multiple comparisons, prediction and response optimization...
  • Statistical control of processes: run charts, Pareto diagrams, cause and effect diagrams, control charts for variables and attributes, weighted time control charts, process capacity for multiple variables...
  • Analysis of the measurement system on worksheets for the collection of data, erroneous classification probabilities, measurement system run charts...
  • Design of experiments (DOE): level two factorials, split-plot factorials, general factorials, Plackett-Burman factorials, response surface designs...
  • Reliability/Survival: analysis of parametric and non-parametric distributions, goodness-for-fit measurements, least squares and maximum likelihood estimations, accelerated life testing...
  • Sample size and power: calculation of the size of the sample for the estimation, for tolerance intervals, for one and two sample Poisson rates...
  • Multivariate: analysis of main components, factorial analysis, discriminant analysis, cluster observations, correspondece analysis...
  • Time and forecast series: time series charts, trend analysis, decomposition analysis...
  • Non-parametric: sign tests, Wilcoxon, Mann-Whitney, Kruskal-Wallis, Mood's median...
  • Equivalence tests.
  • Chi-square tables and individual variable accounts.
  • Simulations and distributions with random number generators, density functions, and accumulated distribution and random sampling.
  • Macros and capacity to customize the toolbar menus as well as the user profiles.

Don't hesitate to download the trial version of Minitab to check out for yourself how it can help you at work. You can use all the same functions of the full version for 30 days.
