Cheap or free statistics software to do the basic stuff

  1. Oct 22, 2016 #1
    I am looking for a software that enable me to do the basic data analysis like ANOVA, regression, factor analysis and to do nice graphing. I need something similar to SPSS with data entry in the form of variables no coding input like SAS.

    Probably the leader in free statistical packages is R. It is well established and documented and is widely used. There is a learning curve. I'm not sure what you mean about the data entry. It is fairly easy to read a CSV file with variable names coming from the first line header in the CSV file.

    An alternative to R is Julia which can also interoperable with R.

    I haven't used it but I think that AMOS is an extension to be used with SPSS; not stand-alone. There is a free download for a 15-day trial, but after that expires it is not free.
