OpenStat contains a large variety of parametric, nonparametric, multivariate, measurement, statistical process control, financial and other procedures. One can also simulate a variety of data for tests, theoretical distributions, multivariate data, etc. You will want to explore all of these options once you acquire the program! For a complete list of all analyses, click hear:


Note!  OpenStat runs on Windows 8, Windows 7, XP, Virtual XP (in Windows 7) or older versions of Windows. If you are using Linux or MacIntosh OSX, you can download the free WINE software and run OpenStat with WINE.  If you were unfortunate to have installed Windows 10, you will find you have to pay a large amount for installation of a .hlp file reader.  To avoid this, I suggest  you download the OpenStatManual file which is a Microsoft doc file containing directions for use of OpenStat.  You can  keep it open while using OpenStat if you need a reference for use of OpenStat.  Just click on OpenStatManual.

OpenStatSetup.exe This is an INNO setup file for the program. (Last update June. 13, 2014)   A .zip file of sample data files for OpenStat. (Last updated July 5, 2013)  A separate .zip file of the help files which can be accessed via the F1 key in OpenStat.  These files should already be a part of your setup but if, for some reason they are not, you can download this file and unzip it to the same location on your disk where you stored the OpenStat program.

For Teachers and Students:

Springer US has published both softcover and ebooks of the "Statistics and Measurement Concepts with Openstat"  as well as the "OpenStat Reference Manual" in 2013.  In addition, you can download the original full setup program from .  If you are a teacher in the United States and would like a copy of each book, I have a few left to distibute.  Let me know if interested.
