Overview of the Statistics Package

  

The Statistics package is a collection of tools for mathematical statistics and data analysis. The package supports a wide range of common statistical tasks such as quantitative and graphical data analysis, simulation, and curve fitting. Also included is the Data Analysis Assistant, a graphical interface to the data analysis tools in the Statistics package. It can be accessed from the Tools>Assistants menu or using the InteractiveDataAnalysis command.

• 

In addition to standard data analysis tools the Statistics package provides a wide range of symbolic and numeric tools for computing with random variables. The package supports over 35 major probability distributions and provides facilities for defining new distributions.

• 

Much of the functionality in the Statistics package is accessible through context menus. Context-sensitive functionality is available when selecting any data container (such as a Vector, list, or Array), known probability distributions (such as Normal(1,2)), or random variables.

• 

Some related functionality regarding time series is available through the TimeSeriesAnalysis package.
