Latest version: 6.2Data Desk,by Data Description Inc, is a software package for exploratory data analysis. It provides interactive graphical tools for exploring and understanding your data-for finding the patterns, relationships, and exceptions. While it implements many traditional statistics techniques suitable for data from planned experiments and sample surveys, Data Desk’s true strength is its powerful tools for data exploration. Its insightful graphic displays simplify intuitive investigation of your data.
Data Desk's is very easy to use. The interface is designed to be simple and efficient. Modify plots and tables directly with your mouse. Add or change variables with drag and drops. Plots and tables are stored in icons so that they can be opened and modified later.
Data Desk provides many sources of help and guidance. HyperView® menus, attached to every Data Desk plot and table, provide gentle guidance and suggestions. The online Help System gives quick access to information on the program's commands. The Quickstart Guide, Handbook and Statistics Guide offer descriptions of commands, background statistics information and many detailed examples. And free technical support is provided to all registered users.
Data Desk Plus! provides an even greater level of assistance. This package combines Data Desk with ActivStats, our statistics refresh and reference multimedia CD. ActivStats uses video, narration, interactive tools, simulations, and web links to help you learn and understand statistics concepts. It also shows you how to apply those concepts to real-world data in Data Desk with special guided analysis files.
Data Desk ships with an Excel add-in that moves data directly from Excel into Data Desk.
Data Desk plots are essential when exploring datasets. Data Desk's dynamic plots and tables show patterns and structure among several variables. Rotating plots and sliders use animation to reveal aspects of your data that static plots cannot show. Changing the colour, symbol and selection state of datapoints instantly changes all plots to show patterns, clusters, and outliers. Hot Set selections restrict displays to subsets of your data with a single click. The graphs above show some of the power of Data Desk plots.
In the first example, the scatterplot of gas mileage by weight for a sample of automobiles is colored by the number of Cylinders, and a line fit to each colored subset. As different countries are selected by clicking on cells of the frequency table, the scatterplot shows only the selected cars. It is easy to see how the cars from different countries compare.
