Information about MacAnova

MacAnova is a free, noncommercial, interactive statistical analysis program for Windows (95, 98, NT, XP, Vista), Macintosh (OS 9 and X), Linux and Unix written by Gary W. Oehlert and Christopher Bingham, both of the School of Statistics, University of Minnesota.

MacAnova’s strengths are analysis of variance and related models, matrix algebra, time series, and (to a lesser extent) uni- and multi-variate exploratory statistics.

MacAnova has macros which are used just like functions. Many macros are built in, and eight files of additional macros (general, time series, ARIMA estimation and nonlinear regression, graphing, multivariate analysis, mathematics, regression and design of experiments) are distributed with MacAnova.

MacAnova can be viewed as a programming language with for and while loops, if, else, elseif, break, next, return, and a full range of operations including bit manipulation.

MacAnova can read data from text files, including libraries of data sets in a self documenting format. Windowed versions can import data from or export data to the Clipboard.

Because MacAnova is programmable and allows the use of externally compiled user functions, the scope of possible analyses is almost unlimited.

MacAnova has considerable similarity with S and S-Plus but there are substantial differences.
