    R is more updated and PSPP is not a functional project any more. JASP is more functional and better alternative than PSPP. but PSPP is one of the best names of all.

    Whenever I had to work with SPSS files, it is not easy because SPSS is not installed in all of my computers. I work at home and office and SPSS works only in campus. Number Analytics is great because it works everywhere.

    I tried to use SPSS and Number Analytics. Both are good for professional statisticians. However, if you are new to statistical analysis, I would recommend Number Analytics. It has much less options to choose and simple user interface. Another great thing of Number Analytics is automatic result interpretation. Since I do know know much of statistics, it really helps to understand the statistical results.

    Compared to SPSS, Number Analytics is much simpler and easier to use. It would be great for beginners to learn data analysis. I run ANOVA, test, linear regression analysis and the results were the same as those of SPSS. If you are looking for a SPSS alternative software, Number Analytics would be good for you. However, it does not have advanced statistical analysis and options are limited.

    Number Analytics can import various data files including SPSS data files without conversion. It supports Excel, CSV, STATA, SAS data files. Also the statistical output results are compatible with SPSS outputs. Another great features are that it has color coded result tables and graphs with automatic statistical result interpretation so that you don't need to learn how to interpret statistical results.

    I compared the linear regression, t-test, ANOVA tests results in IBM SPSS and Number Analytics. The results were consistent and the user interfaces are similar. So it would be easier for first learner in statistics. However, it currently lacks data manipulation and advanced statistical analysis like structural equations.

    The outputs for ANOVA, T-test, Regression are compatible with SPSS. It shows the same tables with graphical visualizations. It also comes with automatic interpretation of statistical results. For novice, it would help to understand the basic of statistics.

    Indeed a replacement, developed by people from JASP! Best thing is, it includes R integration.
