A Program for Statistical Analysis and Matrix Algebra

Welcome to the MacAnova Home Page
at the University of Minnesota School of Statistics!

MacAnova is a free, open source, interactive statistical analysis program for Windows, Macintosh, and Linux written by Gary W. Oehlert and Christopher Bingham, both of the School of Statistics, University of Minnesota.

In spite of its name, MacAnova is not just for Macintosh computers and not just for doing Analysis of Variance.

MacAnova has many capabilities but its strengths are analysis of variance and related models, matrix algebra, time series analysis (time and frequency domain), and (to a lesser extent) uni- and multi-variate exploratory statistics. The current version is 5.05 release 1.

Core MacAnova has a functional/command oriented interface, but an increasing number of capabilities are available through a menu/dialog/mouse type interface. Although the language and syntax are S-like (for those of you familiar with S, S-Plus or R), MacAnova is not S or R.

There is extensive documentation for MacAnova available from these Web pages. A recent addition is a HTML version of the information in all help files.

You can download versions for Windows, Macintosh and Linux. The curious or adventurous can also download the complete source for MacAnova. You may also browse the entire MacAnova ftp site.

Happy computing!
