"You can be looking at statistical analyses less than a minute after importing your data." —MacFormat Magazine (UK)

It's true: within minutes of importing your first data set into Wizard, you'll be generating graphics, uncovering correlations, producing p-values, building models, and sharing insights with colleagues. Most customers find that the program pays for itself in just a few days of use. Explore Wizard's delightful feature set, including...

QUICK VISUALIZATIONS

Wizard will start graphing your data as soon as you click on it. It uses native Mac graphics to give you crisp visual summaries — box-plots, scatterplots, histograms, survival curves, and more — in a fraction of a second.

EASY STATISTICAL MODELING

Build sophisticated statistical models in seconds with Wizard's intuitive modeling interface. Regression estimates are instantly recomputed as you play around with the controls and experiment with new specifications.

MAC FRIENDLINESS

Wizard supports drag-and-drop, multi-level Undo, and other interface conveniences that Mac users expect from their software. An interactive tutorial will help you get started.

DATA TRANSFORMATIONS

Dozens of functions are available to help you get data into the form you want. Compute quantiles, perform day-of-week calculations, multiply columns together, and more.

EXPORT EXCELLENCE

Export colorful graphics as web-friendly PNG or print-quality PDF. If you're surrounded by PC users, export your models as interactive spreadsheets that can be used to run "What if?" scenarios in any version of Microsoft Excel.

LIST OF FILE FORMATS AND DATABASES

Although you have the option to enter data manually, more likely you'll want to import data from one of the following sources:

File Formats
• Excel (.xls/.xlsx)
• Numbers ('09 and later)
• R workspace and single-object files (.RData and .rds)
• SQLite
• DBF
• MS-Access (.mdb/.accdb)

Database Servers
• MySQL
• PostgreSQL

To import and export other formats, including SPSS, Stata, and SAS, you can either buy In-App Purchases inside Wizard (Wizard > Unlock Pro Features...), or purchase Wizard Pro, also available in the Mac App Store. The set of included importers is the only difference between the Pro and Standard versions.

What's new

• Duration data: Support for importing and formatting time durations as HH:MM:SS or other formats. Great for analyzing e.g. race results.

• Combine Pivot functions - You can now add, subtract, multiply, and divide columns in the Pivot table for more insightful reports.

• Organize filter sets: If you spend a lot of time with Filters, the new version will let you name and organize an unlimited number of filter sets easily. That way you can switch between subsets of the data without having to reselect all the filter conditions individually.

• Indicator Variables with "OR" conditions: In previous versions, Indicator Variables were equal to 1 when all of the conditions are true. In this version, you have a new option to set the value to 1 when any condition is true.

• Reorder categories: If you don't like the default ordering of categories in a particular column, you can now drag and drop to rearrange.

This release also includes a number bug fixes and stability improvements. Enjoy!
