# Statistical package

A

**statistical package** is a kind of large

computer program that is specialised for

statistical analysis. It enables people not skilled in programming to obtain the results of standard statistical procedures and

statistical significance tests.

Examples of statistical packages include (in alphabetical order):

- GenStat
- Macanova
- Minitab
- SAS
- SPSS
- StatView
- Systat

Almost all these are now also the titles of the

software companies that produce them (and usually other software as well).
