There is almost no discipline within the university that will not require some form of statistical analysis at one time or another in its execution. Many people see this as a daunting task, but it doesn’t have to be.

STATISTICA is generally agreed to contain the most comprehensive array of data analysis, data management, data visualization, and data mining tools available on the market. It allows researchers a huge selection of predictive modelling, clustering, classification, and exploratory techniques in a wide-ranging and multi-functional software platform.
