There are a bewildering number of statistical analyses out there, and
choosing
the right one for a particular set of data can be a daunting task. Here
are
some web pages that can help:
 Statistical
Decision Tree, from the developers of the MicrOsiris
package. This is an
interactive set of web pages to help you select the right kind of
analysis to perform on your data. It asks you a simple series of
questions about your data (how many variables, etc.), then makes
recommendations about the best test to perform.
 Choosing
a Statistical Test, Chapter 37 of Dr. Harvey
Motulsky's book Intuitive
Biostatistics.
 "Selecting
Statistics", by Bill Trochim (Cornell). Another
interactive
set of web pages to help you select the right kind of analysis to
perform on your data.
As you can see from looking at the StatPages.org web site, there are
many
"standalone" web pages that are each designed to perform only a single
test
or calculation. In addition, some talented individuals and groups have
created
coherent website that perform an entire suite of calculations,
with
a logical organization and consistent user interface. Each of these web
sites
is really a fairly complete online statistical software package in
itself.
Here are some of these "comprehensive" statistical analysis web sites:
 OpenEpi
Version 2.2 
OpenEpi is a free, webbased, open source, operatingsystemindependent
series of programs for use in public health and medicine, providing a
number of epidemiologic and statistical tools. Version 2 (4/25/2007)
has a new interface that presents results without using popup windows,
and has better installation methods so that it can be run without an
internet connection. Version 2.2 (2007/11/09) lets users run the
software in English, French, Spanish, or Italian.
 SOCR 
Statistics Online
Computational Resource. A very comprehensive collection of
online
calculators and other interactive resources, including: Distributions
(interactive graphs and calculators), Experiments (virtual
computergenerated analogs of popular games and processes), Analyses
(collection of common webaccessible tools for statistical data
analysis), Games (interfaces and simulations to reallife processes),
Modeler (tools for distribution, polynomial and spectral modelfitting
and simulation), Graphs, Plots and Charts (comprehensive webbased
tools for exploratory data analysis), Additional Tools (other
statistical tools and resources), SOCR Wiki (collaborative Wiki
resource), Educational Materials and Handson Activities (varieties of
SOCR educational materials), SOCR Statistical Consulting and
Statistical Computing Libraries.
 SciStatCalc
 a very good web site (thank you Alijah Ahmed!), with online
calculators for many of the common statistical probability functions
and significance tests, and pages that explain the concepts and
formulas behind the tests. Calculating pages provide flexible input
options (type the numbers in, or read them from a text fiile), and
wellorganized output of results, with interpretations and graphical
displays.
 VSUstat
 a free online statistical analysis tool for basic experimental
design. It can do ANOVA and posthoc analysis using Tukey's HSD and
Fisher's LSD for completely randomized designs (CRD), randomized
complete block designs (RCBD), Latin square designs, and twofactor
factorial design for CRD and RCBD. It can also calculate descriptive
statistics (sum, mean, range, min, max, standard deviation, variance,
standard error mean, skewness, standard error skewness, standard error
kurtosis) and analyze Student's ttest (onesample ttest,
independentsamples ttest, pairedsamples ttest). VSUstat can import,
export, and save datasets, access public datasets, and produce output
in PDF, HTML, XLS, and RTF.
 ProtoGenie
 a free
extensible webbased environment for research design and data
collection for surveys, experiments, clinical trials, time series,
cognitive and vision research, and methods courses. Lets you specify
groups and define measurement and treatment events and their
sequencing. The goal is to let users move smoothly from research design
and data collection to interim and final statistical analysis.
 Statlets
 an "online statistical computing center" providing access to over 50
applets in which you can enter data, compute statistics, create tables
and graphs, and print out the results. Provides basic plotting,
probability distributions, summary statistics, onesample analysis,
timeseries analysis, twosample comparisons, regression analysis,
attribute estimates, ANOVAs, and Statistical Process Control. This
public version supports up to 50 rows and 8 columns of data. For larger
data sets, a singleuser copy or a corporate deployment license can be
purchased.
 The
Calcugator
 a calculator, plotting engine, and programming environment. Also
available as a free standalone downloadable program. Simple to use;
rivals programs like MATLAB, with 200 functions/operators to perform
real, integer, rational, complex, boolean, statistical, vector, array
and matrix computations. Both the input and output of the program are
displayed on standard windows which can be further edited, saved,
merged, printpreviewed and printed. Allows rapid creation of 2D and 3D
plots of functions, polar and parametric displays, bar, pie, pareto and
xy charts. All plots can be configured using the mouse (zooming,
panning, selecting). Titles and labels are supported, and all figures
created by the Calcugator can be exported into popular file formats or
pasted into an editable window. As a programming environment it has a
simple and compact language with identical syntax to Java/C/C++, and
allows userdefined functions.
 SISA
(Simple
Interactive Statistical Analysis)  SISA allows you to do
statistical analysis directly on the Internet. Click on one of the
procedure names below, fill in the form, click the button, and the
analysis will take place on the spot. Study the user friendly guides to
statistical procedures to see what procedure is appropriate for your
problem.
 The
WebMath page performs
a large number of numeric calculations and symbolic algebraic
manipulations of the type that might arise in high school / college
algebra and calculus, including some elementary statistical
calculations. In doing so, it provides a detailed stepbystep
explanation of how it arrived at the answer.

or
relation found in high school and undergraduate college mathematics.
Plots functions of the form y = f(x), such as y = x2 or y = 3x + 1, or
relations of the form f(x,y) = g(x,y), such as x2 + y2 = 4. (No Java
needed.)
 Linear
Programming Grapher Enter a linear function of two
variables to
be minimized, and any number of linear inequality expressions, and the
page will instantly solve it and display a graph showing the feasible
region and the constraints.
 Simplex
Tool  Similar to the Linear Programming Grapher, but works
with
functions of more than two variables, and doesn't graph the results.
 Integrators
 type in any function;
the computer displays the indefinite integral function (if one exists)
and/or the value of the definite integral (area under the curve)
between two endpoints...

 Bayesian
Credibililty Analysis 
allows the credibility of a clinical trial finding to be assessed in
the light of current knowledge. This page takes the odds ratio and its
confidence interval from a clinical trial, and uses a newlydeveloped
Bayesian method to calculate a quantity called the critical
odds
ratio (COR). If odds ratios at least as impressive as
that
indicated by the COR can be justified by existing knowledge, then the
results of the clinical trial can be deemed credible.
 Etiologic
Predictive
Value (EPV)  a new statistical method developed for
determining
the probability of symptoms being caused by a bacteriological finding,
while taking carriers into consideration. To calculate EPV, one must
know the number of positive and negative tests among patients and
healthy controls as well as the sensitivity of the test. This enables
calculating the positive and negative EPV with a 95% confidence
interval.

or qualitative. The site can handle inequality and equality (e.g.,
mixture) constraints; provides color plots; performs oneclick,
runorderrandomization; allows design import/export interoperable with
most 3rdparty analysis software; provides OLS and BLUP fits; and
includes an extensive Classical Design Library(tm), including
factorial, fractionalfactorial, BoxBehnken, centralcomposite,
PlackettBurman, orthogonal array, and uniform designs. All designs may
be evaluated under the I, D, and A, and Soptimality criteria, as
well as for the maximum distance between nearestneighbor pairs of
design points (maximin criterion). The My WebDOE(tm) feature allows
users to store their designs, evaluations, and fits online. There is
no need for userprovided candidatepoints.
 Design
and Analysis of Comparative Experiments website by Horticulture
Research International  provides facilities for the design
and
analysis of of comparative experiments for biological and agicultural
research based on a range of experimental block and treatment
structures. Constructs simple experimental designs interactively and
also constructs appropriate statistical software for the analysis of
the designs. Handles Randomised block, Splitplot, Latin and incomplete
Latin square, Trojan and incomplete Trojan square designs.
 Tables of Latin
Squares for
constructing "Williams design" experiments, in which every subject
receives every treatment. These designs are balanced for firstorder
carryover (residual effects). Tables are provided for experiments
ranging from 2 to 26 treatments. Tables can also be downloaded as a text file and as an Excel
spreadsheet.
 Samplesize calculations for parallelgroup
equivalence and superiority trials with continuous or binary outcome
variables.

 generates experimental designs and randomizes the position of
experimental treatments in the design, so that the subsequent analysis
of the data is comparatively straightforward

all based upon the LanDeMets
method. Allows computation of boundaries at any time during
the
monitoring of a study. It is valid for any normal test statistic with
independent increments. The information time is the ratio of accrued
sample size to the total sample size for normal data.
