PASS 13 on a Mac

A Windows emulator (such as Parallels) is required to run PASS 13 on a Mac.

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.

"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!"
