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" (Apr. 2013)

"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
• MS-Access (.mdb/.accdb)
• 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.

What's New in Version 1.6.8

New in 1.6.8:

• Fix an issue with the application failing to launch after several weeks
• Custom-interval partitions now accept duration strings (e.g. "1d 3h")
• The CSV importer now accepts timestamps in UTC format
• Columns imported from Numbers '13 documents were sometimes missing or out of order
• Added support for importing values from multiple-choice cells in Numbers '09 and Numbers '13 documents
• Added support for more character encodings when importing SAS and SPSS files (Feature requires In-App Purchase)
• Exported SAV files now work better with SPSS (Feature requires In-App Purchase)
• Added support for importing large (2GB+) SAS files (Feature requires In-App Purchase)

[Older release notes below]

New in 1.6.0:

• Duration data: Support for importing and formatting time durations as HH:MM:SS or other formats. Great for analyzing e.g. race results.

• Combine Pivot functions - You can now add, subtract, multiply, and divide columns in the Pivot table for more insightful reports.

• Organize filter sets: If you spend a lot of time with Filters, the new version will let you name and organize an unlimited number of filter sets easily. That way you can switch between subsets of the data without having to reselect all the filter conditions individually.

• Indicator Variables with "OR" conditions: In previous versions, Indicator Variables were equal to 1 when all of the conditions are true. In this version, you have a new option to set the value to 1 when any condition is true.

• Reorder categories: If you don't like the default ordering of categories in a particular column, you can now drag and drop to rearrange.

New in 1.6.1:

• Fix a number of minor interface bugs

New in 1.6.2:

• New ability to export "The Bottom Line" (image, test statistic, p-value, etc.)
• New ability to select multiple Pivot functions at once
• Use the standard definition of median in case of ties (average of 2 tied values)
• Improved support for importing number-format information from Excel and Numbers documents
• Fix bug when attempting to overwrite an existing document
• Fix a bug with binary response models exported as XLS
• Minor interface improvements

New in 1.6.3:

• Performance and stability improvements on Yosemite

New in 1.6.4:

• Fix a crash when viewing box-plots in the Summary view

New in 1.6.5:

• Improved support for non-ASCII characters in sas7bdat files (Feature requires In-App Purchase)

New in 1.6.6:

• Fix a crash in the SPSS importer (Feature requires In-App Purchase)

New in 1.6.7:

• Fix a crash when exporting a Pivot table containing missing values to Excel
• Fix a crash when copying a Stacked table
• Performance improvements when importing large SPSS files (Feature requires In-App Purchase)
• Improved support for SPSS command files (Feature requires In-App Purchase)
• Improved support for dates, times, value labels, and character encodings in SAS files (Feature requires In-App Purchase)
