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 used several statistics tools, but NCSS is the best statistics tool. It is easy to use because the interface and menu are easy to be used. And NCSS is very useful to support an analysis [in] data research.

Evi Triandini, Researcher

I am a very satisfied user of NCSS. For years I used SPSS in my consulting work, but the cost got to be exorbitant. When I started using NCSS, I found it easy and intuitive to use and extremely accurate in its results. It is not only my statistical analysis program of choice but I have recommended it to many of my clients as well. When I've had questions and called NCSS, I have always gotten expert help and advice and never had a problem go unsolved. Keep up the good work.
