Systat 13

Systat Software, a developer and supplier of scientific software and services, has launched Systat 13, the latest version of its flagship statistical software package. This latest release features new statistical methods, faster data computation and an optional module which adds Cytel's Exact Tests functionality.

The statistical methods added to the package include ARCH and GARCH models for time series analyses. Other statistical enhancements include best subsets regression, confirmatory factor analysis and additional non-parametric testing algorithms.
