This app works with: Basilisk II,

StatView was one of the first statistics applications to have a graphical user interface, capitalizing on the Macintosh's GUI.

A user saw a spreadsheet of his or her data, comprising columns that could be integers, long integers, real numbers, strings, or categories, and rows that were usually cases (such as individual people for psychology data). Columns had informative headings; rows were numbered. Category data looked like strings (e.g., a column headed "sex" would have entries of "male" and "female", but these were coded by the application as integers). Category data were used to perform inferential statistical tests such as t tests, ANOVAs, and chi square tests. To calculate statistics, a user clicked on particular column headings, designating them as an x value and one or more y values. Then the user used the application's menus to choose descriptive statistics or inferential statistics.

StatView was initially distributed by BrainPower Inc from California. It grew up with the Macintosh, changing owners along the way. StatView 3 to 5 were distributed by Abacus Corporation. It was then bought by SAS who discontinued it in favour of JMP. The application continued to run under Classic emulation with Apple's Mac OS X, but could not run on Intel Macintoshes. In 2014, it still runs under OS 10.7.5 emulation using Basilisk II.

The download is version 5.0.

Remember to type old files as Type:DOBJ and Creator:Rand in order to open them. To do this use Resedit 2.1.3 and use the get info feature from the file menu. Note, you may have to select the contents of the fields and clear them. In Resedit, DO NOT *tab* from field to field as that will add an invisible character to the field.
