About Us


NCSS was founded in 1981 to supply statistical software to the research community. Since then, tens of thousands of customers have used NCSS software (NCSS and PASS) for statistical, graphics, and power analysis / sample size purposes. The company is led by Dr. Jerry Hintze, an experienced Ph.D. statistician.

Our Mission

For the last 36 years, our mission has been to provide accurate, user-friendly, fully-supported statistical analysis, graphics, and sample size tools. We seek to produce applications the research community requests, as well as new tools to guide improvement in analysis and sample size estimation.

"I have been using NCSS for almost 20 years. I absolutely love it. It does everything [I need that] SPSS or SAS does, is more reasonably priced and user friendly and has wonderful customer support. If you have a problem, when you call a real person (who created the software) gently talks you through it. It is a great product and a great company."

"I had been using [another statistical software package] for over 15 years until recently when I noticed it would not run ANOVAs correctly. After researching numerous options I switched to NCSS and PASS and couldn't be happier. Your product is accurate, fast, easy to use, and very inexpensive. And thanks to the software’s flexibility in reporting and graphing, it has made my consulting business easier as well. Thank you!"
