NCSS 2022 on a Mac

I adore NCSS and PASS. I have been using them for 20 years now.

Mario Martinez Gonzalez, MPH, FEE, MD, Universidad Nacional Autonoma de Mexico

"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."
