Statistics don't have to be pretty to be useful, but it sure makes them easier to look at all day. StatView, previously available only in a Macintosh version, now gives you an eye-pleasing way to look at stats in Windows as well.

The program stores data in a column/row spreadsheet format; you turn the information into tables and graphs. You can draw objects in the program's View window, and combine these objects with tables, graphs and text to create a colorful presentation. You can save any view as a template, making it easy to repeat complex tasks. StatView lets you customize bar, line and point charts, as well as scattergrams, histograms and box plots. In the View window, you can move drawn objects, graphs, tables and text anywhere you want them. You control the color of all objects.
