"You can be looking at statistical analyses less than a minute after importing your data." —MacFormat Magazine (UK)

It's true: within minutes of importing your first data set into Wizard, you'll be generating graphics, uncovering correlations, producing p-values, building models, and sharing insights with colleagues. Most customers find that the program pays for itself in just a few days of use. Explore Wizard's delightful feature set, including...

QUICK VISUALIZATIONS

Wizard will start graphing your data as soon as you click on it. It uses native Mac graphics to give you crisp visual summaries — box-plots, scatterplots, histograms, survival curves, and more — in a fraction of a second.

EASY STATISTICAL MODELING

Build sophisticated statistical models in seconds with Wizard's intuitive modeling interface. Regression estimates are instantly recomputed as you play around with the controls and experiment with new specifications.

MAC FRIENDLINESS

Wizard supports drag-and-drop, multi-level Undo, and other interface conveniences that Mac users expect from their software. An interactive tutorial will help you get started.

DATA TRANSFORMATIONS

Dozens of functions are available to help you get data into the form you want. Compute quantiles, perform day-of-week calculations, multiply columns together, and more.

EXPORT EXCELLENCE

Export colorful graphics as web-friendly PNG or print-quality PDF. If you're surrounded by PC users, export your models as interactive spreadsheets that can be used to run "What if?" scenarios in any version of Microsoft Excel.

LIST OF FILE FORMATS AND DATABASES

Although you have the option to enter data manually, more likely you'll want to import data from one of the following sources:

File Formats
• Excel (.xls/.xlsx)
• Numbers ('09 and later)
• R workspace files (.RData and .rds)
• JSON (JavaScript Object Notation)
• SQLite
• DBF and MS-Access
• Plain text (Comma-, tab-, and custom-delimited values)

Database Servers
• MySQL
• PostgreSQL

PRO File Formats
• SAS binary (.sas7bdat) and descriptor (.sas) files
• SPSS binary (.sav), portable (.por), and descriptor (.sps) files
• Stata binary (.dta) and dictionary (.dct) files

What's New in Version 1.7.2

New in 1.7.2:

• Import and export case weights (a.k.a. frequency weights, a.k.a. "Treat as Row Counts") from SPSS files
• Import missing-value definitions from SPSS files
• Improved support for reading compressed SAS files
• New "between" operator for defining missing values


New in 1.7.1:

• Fix minor issues in the Numbers and SAV importers
• Fix an issue when attempting to import a custom-delimited file without a document open
• Fix an issue where some of the Summary exporters did nothing

New in 1.7:

• 1-click Data Refresh: By popular demand! Command-R to refresh your data from the original source, Command-E to configure the link.

• Revamped menu system: Wizard has a new modular architecture that means you'll only see menus relevant to what you're doing -- that is, Raw Data, Pivot, Summary, Model, and Predict each have their own menu now. Most of the menus are more concise, so you can find what you're looking for faster.

• JSON support: Wizard 1.7 can import JavaScript (JSON) data files. Make sure your data is encoded as an array of objects and Wizard will do the rest. Export any table or result as JSON, too.

Customer Reviews

Take it for a trial run...

Wizard is a wonderful tool for the statistical neophyte, acolyte, or, dare I say, wizard. It is intuitive and extremely fast, providing the user with complex analyses of large datasets as quickly as you can determine the variables of interest. The support forums are particularly helpful if questions arise and the developer is wonderfully responsive. It is an elegant application...

Simple

Did non-parametric analysis on Excel data with results in less than 15 minutes first time out. Nice teaching module. Pretty good and quick graphics export. Less than $1400 for year. Thanks. Alaska.
