Descriptive Statistics

Create basic charts to compare frequency and percentages for variables or codes. Frequency tables are interactive – remove and merge columns or rows with automatic recalculation of percentages. Create customizable charts and diagrams for your results and copy to output viewer or directly to your reports and presentations.

Calculate descriptive statistics including mean, standard deviation, variance, quartiles, median and range.

Compare Groups

There is a wide variety of methods to explore relationships between two or more variables. Crosstabs are one of the basics that no statistics program can do without: they’re easy to customize and can provide valuable insights for everzone – not just statisticians. Highlighting options make the interpretation of results quick and easy.

If you’re looking for something more advanced, you can also compare the effect of a factor on different groups with an analysis of variance (ANOVA).

Analyzing correlation with Analytics Pro


One of the most fundamental statistical procedures to explore connections within your data is to check for correlations. The Stats module enables you to calculate the two most commonly used correlation coefficients with a few mouse clicks: Pearsons r and Spearmans Rho.

Scale, Compute & Recode

Creating your own scale can be a great way to properly measure the dimensions that you are most interested in. Calculate Cronbachs Alpha to check reliability. Save scales as new variables and calculate the sum or mean of the item values.

Create new variables by computing or recoding existing variable values.
