Fast Statistics is a statistical analysis program for Microsoft Excel. It is can be used as an add-on for it and also it can be installed as a stand-alone application, so there is no need to have MS-Excel installed. It can complete different tasks from manipulations of basic data up to the advanced statistical analysis to produce sophisticated reports and charts. This tool is perfect for Six Sigma, Descriptive Analysis, ANOVA, intelligent data input, factor analysis, regression, dummy regression, non-linear regression, box plots, non-parametric tests, and correspondence analysis.
After a fast download and installation, you are presented with an Excel-like graphical user interface with 2 windows (a Session window and a Workbook 1 window). From here you can Manipulate, Calculate, Design, Plot, and do Stats and Graphs, in their respective windows.
I found out that HTML statistical and graphical analysis reports can be exported using this tool. Import and export of other data formats such as Excel workbook sheets and currency, and text are also possible.
Data manipulation is possible. It supports double precision worksheets. Fast Statistics contains a random number generator and inverse cumulative distribution, density, and distribution functions. It displays descriptive, correlation, and covariance statistics. Fast Statistics also runs a Hypothesis test, ANOVA, Regression, Nonparametrics, Goodness-of-Fit Time Series and DOE statistics.
I liked the graph creation with all its pictorial gallery and dialogue boxes. Multiple graphs can be placed on a single page. Also, rotating, scrolling and moving 3D data graphs are supported. Creating animation charts, basic graphs, statistical graphs, quality control charts and capability analyses is also possible using this tool.
- Easy to use
- Animation charts
