Statgraphics is a statistics package that performs and explains basic and advanced statistical functions.


The software was created in 1980 by Dr. Neil W. Polhemus while on the faculty at the Princeton University School of Engineering and Applied Science for use as a teaching tool for his statistics students. It was made available to the public in 1982, becoming and early example of data science software designed for use on the PC.

Statgraphics is frequently used for Six Sigma process improvement.[1] The program has also been used in various health and nutrition-related studies.[2][3][4] The software is heavily used in manufacturing chemicals, pharmaceuticals, medical devices, automobiles, food and consumer goods. It is also widely used in mining,[5] environmental studies,[6][7] and basic R&D.[8]


Statgraphics is distributed by Statgraphics Technologies, Inc., a privately held company based in The Plains, Virginia.
