Understanding statistics with GraphPad Software

Customers of all sizes struggle to understand the volumes and value of data available within their organisation – but GraphPad Software offers tools that can assist those without truly expert statisticians in house.

GraphPad’s flagship tool for statistical analysis is Prism, which helps users organise and analyse their data correctly.

“Unlike spreadsheets or other scientific graphing programs, Prism has eight different types of data tables specifically formatted for the analyses you want to run. This makes it easier to enter data correctly, choose suitable analyses, and create stunning graphs,” according to GraphPad.

It offers an extensive library of analyses from common to highly specific: nonlinear regression, t tests, nonparametric comparisons, one-, two- and three-way ANOVA, analysis of contingency tables, survival analysis, and much more.

“Each analysis has a checklist to help you understand the required statistical assumptions and confirm you have selected an appropriate test,” it says.

GraphPad also offers blogs and tutorials to help users get a little further in their use of data, shining a light on topics such as the difference between correlation and linear regression.

“Correlation quantifies the direction and strength of the relationship between two numeric variables, X and Y, and always lies between -1.0 and 1.0. Simple linear regression relates X to Y through an equation of the form Y = a + bX,” it explains.

“Correlation is a single statistic, whereas regression produces an entire equation.”

GraphPad also offers a free guide, downloadable online, on the Essential Dos and Don’ts of Statistics, and a range of video tutorials for all levels of user.
