SOFA Statistics is an open-source statistical package, with an emphasis on ease of use, learn as you go, and beautiful output. The name stands for Statistics Open For All. It has a graphical user interface and can connect directly to MySQL, PostgreSQL, SQLite, MS Access, Microsoft SQL Server, and CUBRID. Data can also be imported from CSV files or spreadsheets (Microsoft Excel, OpenOffice.org Calc, Gnumeric, Google Docs).
Installation packages are available for several Operating Systems such as Microsoft Windows, Ubuntu, ArchLinux, Linux Mint, and Mac OS X (Lion, Leopard and Snow Leopard).
SOFA Statistics is written in Python, and the widget toolkit used is wxPython. The statistical analyses are based on functions available through the Scipy stats module.
Analysis and reporting can be automated using Python scripts – either exported directly from SOFA Statistics or manually written.
