Wizard - Statistics, Visualization, Data Analysis, Predictive Modeling

By Evan Miller

Open the Mac App Store to buy and download apps.


Wizard is a new Mac app that makes data analysis easier than ever. No programming, no typing — just click and explore. Wizard makes statistics accessible to beginners, but beneath the surface lies a full set of tools for doing professional research.

Featured by Apple! "New and Noteworthy" (Feb. 2013) and "Apps for Business" (Sept. 2015)

"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...


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.


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.


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.


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 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.


Wizard supports the most common statistical tests and models, including...

Univariate Tests
+ Shapiro-Wilk test of normality
+ 1-sample Kolmogorov-Smirnov (normality and uniformity)
+ Pearson's goodness-of-fit (equal proportions)

Bivariate Tests
+ Pearson's goodness-of-fit (chi-square)
+ t-test (paired and unpaired)
+ ANOVA (1-way, 2-way, and repeated measures)
+ Correlation and R²
+ Median tests: Mann-Whitney and Kruskal-Wallis
+ NEW: Wilcoxon signed-rank and Friedman tests
+ Survival analysis: Log-rank test
+ 2-sample and N-sample Kolmogorov-Smirnov

Multivariate Models
+ Linear regression (OLS)
+ Weighted linear regression (WLS)
+ Poisson and geometric regression
+ Logistic regression (Logit) and Probit
+ Multinomial Logit and Ordered Probit
+ Negative Binomial (NegBin-2)
+ Cox Proportional Hazards

Regression Features
+ Fixed effects
+ Robust standard errors
+ Clustered standard errors
+ Joint significance tests (Wald tests)
+ Odds ratios
+ Residual analysis
+ Sensitivity/specificity analysis (ROC curves)
+ Censoring of survival data (Cox models)
+ Interactive prediction assistant
+ Copy models as R code

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 and single-object files (.RData and .rds)
• SQLite
• DBF and Microsoft Access
• Plain text (Comma-, tab-, and custom-delimited values)

Database Servers
• PostgreSQL

To import and export other formats, including SPSS, Stata, and SAS, you can either buy In-App Purchases inside Wizard (Wizard > Unlock Pro Features...), or purchase Wizard Pro, also available in the Mac App Store. The set of included importers is the only difference between the Pro and Standard versions.

New in 1.7.15:

• Treat HH:MM data in CSV files as a time of day, rather than a duration (use "1h 2m" format for duration)
• Treat "NULL" as missing in CSV files

New in 1.7.13:

• Improved support for importing multiple tables from RData files
• Fix a glitch when exporting logistic models to Excel
• Fix a crash when dividing one column by another in a Stacked Table
• Fix interface glitches when defining a Recode Variable

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

So far this is phenomenal !

UPDATE: Love the app! Any chance we’ll see an iOS version for iPad with .txt or .csv import from email attachments?

As a Design for Six Sigma Master Black Belt with over 15 years experience with MINITAB, I’ve been disappointed for so long that the software hasn’t returned (yes, it once was on Mac) to the platform that in my disappointment I never really found an alternative. That has ended. Wizard is fantastic…both in it’s implementation and simplicity as well as it’s statistical prowess. The attention to detail, the continuing development based on customer feedback, and the Mac OS X modern look and feel means the developer/author is serious about helping while making a return on his investment. I applaud the differentiation and version 1.5’s method of buying the upgrade-to-Pro feature that “you” need viz-a-viz importers from professional stats programs is well done. (I’m waiting for the MTB worksheet importer!). Finally, the outputs are as simple as the graphics are beautiful…contextually click just about anywhere to get output choices.

Great job! App is dynamically expanding with updates and the developer has a weekly blog discussing use cases and upcoming changes. I highly recommend this for Mac OS X users in high school through professional working environments.

Incredidble product

This software is amazing. The visualization capabilities are incredible. How the hell can you sell this for $80? It’s easily worth 4X the price.
