"We have used your product for almost 20 years... It has been a vital part of the research initiatives we have conducted over the years. Through each version of NCSS, we have been able to count on its user-friendly design, broad range of statistical tools and a high level of very personalized customer support..."

Dr. George Ebra, Dr. Debra Guest, Research

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.
