Minitab Express 1.5 introduces data import from Excel, bootstrapping and randomization tests, and new regression features.
Easily import Microsoft Excel XLSX files directly into Minitab Express.
Use resampling techniques to estimate confidence intervals for a parameter of interest, such as the mean, median, or proportion, and to conduct hypothesis tests.
Identify important variables and create predictive models for a binary response.
Use these model reduction techniques to identify the best regression equation.
Explore data collected over time with new Time Series tools:
Assess the stability of a process with these new Control Charts:
Include a categorical predictor and calculate confidence intervals for coefficients when running regression analysis.
Calculate summary statistics for rows and columns. For example, calculate row averages to demonstrate the Central Limit Theorem.
Fit an exponential, lognormal, or Weibull distribution for histograms and probability plots, and use a geometric distribution when calculating and graphing probability distributions.
Create formulas using new percentile, concatenate, combinations, permutations, factorial, IF, AND, OR, NOT,
, ≥, =, and ≠ functions.
Generate data sets randomly sampled from generic or Bernoulli distributions.
Analyze your data using seven new Nonparametric Tests:
Assess the variability in a data set or compare data sets with three new Variance Tests:
A host of new features expand your ability to edit graphs. For example, you can now:
The new Make Similar feature retains your most recent dialog settings and graph edits. With one click you can quickly return to any dialog, change your inputs and settings, and generate new output.
Easily edit your graphs. Change the text in titles, subtitles, footnotes, and axis labels by simply clicking on the field and editing it. You can also add or delete graph titles, data labels, gridlines, and more.
Directly import Minitab worksheets that are embedded within Minitab MPJ or Minitab Express MPJX project files. Just click File > Open Worksheet to extract worksheets from projects.
To help you interpret your results, Minitab Express now provides a graph that illustrates your confidence intervals for 1 and 2 Proportions Tests.
Give yourself immediate access to any analysis you frequently use by adding it to your toolbar. Just right-click on the toolbar to customize it, and click and drag the tools you want to add.
Calculate descriptive statistics for more than one column of data at a time, and include skewness and kurtosis in your analysis.
Easily zoom in or out of both the data pane and the output pane.
Export output as .PNG, .PDF, or .HTML by right-clicking in the output pane. You can also edit tables that you have pasted into other applications, such as Microsoft Word or PowerPoint.
Data manipulation is easier. For example, you don’t have to select an entire column when pasting data from one column into another, and Minitab Express will warn you if you try to paste a column name into a data cell.
