SAL Home MATH Statistics


statist is a small, handy statistics program. It is terminal based, but can use Gnuplot for showing graphs.

It is simple to use and can be run in scripts. It provides quite a number of statitical functions, like

  • standard deviation, mean, geometric mean
  • (multiple) linear regression
  • rank correlation by Spearman
  • partial linear regression
  • polynomial regression
  • t-test
  • test of normal distribution (KOLMOGOROFF-SMIRNOFF-LILLIEFORS)
  • Chi-square-tests
  • u-test
  • two-probe test by WLCOXON
  • test for k unrelated samples
  • probit analysis (?)
  • cross-validation of linear models (?)
The program can handle quite big datasets reasonably on small machines, and you can give additional commands to Gnuplot. Only the documentation is still in German, the program completly runs in English and German. You can choose the langugage at compile time.

There is an experimental GUI for statist, called StatistX.
