Minitab is a powerful and polished statistics package with strong analysis and reporting capabilities.

Minitab is a well-known program that simplifies the process of getting to the bottom line from data regardless of how complex or large that data set may be. The program also supports seven languages in addition to English, including Spanish, German, and Simplified Chinese.

This is a powerful platform that gives you the tools to manipulate data in many different ways. It also features the Minitab Assistant, which eases the process of determining how best to assess data. It can guide you through all of the potentially relevant models until you determine the right ways to analyze and visualize your data.

Something else that distinguishes Minitab from other programs like it is that it makes it simple to turn analysis and visualization into distributable reports. Providing an answer to a question is often as simple as clicking a chart. The program can also add explanatory details to reports so that readers can appreciate those reports without needing a high-level understanding of statistics.

About the worst thing that can be said about Minitab is that the user interface seems a bit outdated in a visual sense, but the UI is still quite functional. It’s also worth mentioning that the program is geared toward businesses with complex statistical needs, and while there is a student-oriented version available, it may not be a practical solution for basic to intermediate statistical problems.
