Topics Description Statistical analysis is commonly used to describe, analyze, interpret and report data for most biomedical research studies, and it is done by using one of several available statistical packages. The American Statistical Association website lists over 100 statistical packages available to the public. Choosing an appropriate statistical software program depends on the type of analysis, cost of the statistical package, computer platform being used for the analysis, and technical level of the researcher using the statistical package. In this talk, we will introduce some of the most commonly used statistical packages, and will focus on the capabilities of the package, availability and cost of the package, and ease of using the package. We will highlight some of the differences in these common packages by applying them to a simple data example and graphical analysis.
