Palisade's StatTools software brings unprecedented statistical power to Microsoft Excel. By combining robust statistical procedures, Excel's ease-of-use, and customisation capabilities, StatTools sets a new standard in statistical analysis. Learning Statistics with StatTools is written to help you get the most out of StatTools in a practical, straightforward manner.
Much more than a software reference manual, this book shows you how to apply statistics to problems you face. Each chapter discusses a logically grouped set of statistical procedures, grouped as they are in the StatTools menu structure. The author illustrates each procedure with a representative data set, explaining how StatTools can be used to analyse the data in an appropriate way. He even discusses the meaning of the StatTools output, just for those of you who need a refresher in basic statistics. After many of the sections, additional notes are provided about alternative StatTools possibilities or statistical details.
Statistical procedure groups covered include:
Regression and Classification
Time Series and Forecasting
Expanding StatTools with Custom Procedures
