External Resources on Statistics

This list of statisitcal software has been compiled to help researchers identify statistical tools that may help in their projects.


Search the list of software

The list includes:

  • helpful information on software functionality and the potential use of each tool
  • background information to add useful context
  • links to software download pages and details on licence availability and user restrictions

It should be recognised that many of the systems share functionality and the use of any alternative system is a matter of preference. Thus we do not offer any opinions on the quality or relative value of different systems.

Thank you to Simon French (Director of RISCU) and Andrew Mead (Life Sciences) for their insights into the functionality and usability of the packages on offer.
