Number Analytics vs MinitabFor basic statistics like descriptive statistics, ANOVA, T-test, Linear Regression are also available. It is easier to use but the functionalities are limited for professional statistical analysis.I used Minitab for basic statisticcal analysis like t-test, ANOVA test, and regression analysis. The basic statistical analysis results are comparable with those from Number Analytics. For those who start to learn basic statistics would benefit from Number Analytics because it is free for basic statistics. The basic plan is limited to use less than 2M byte data file, but for learning statistics, it would be good enough.
