"You can be looking at statistical analyses less than a minute after importing your data." —MacFormat Magazine (UK)
It's true: within minutes of importing your first data set into Wizard, you'll be generating graphics, uncovering correlations, producing p-values, building models, and sharing insights with colleagues. Most customers find that the program pays for itself in just a few days of use. Explore Wizard's delightful feature set, including...
Wizard will start graphing your data as soon as you click on it. It uses native Mac graphics to give you crisp visual summaries — box-plots, scatterplots, histograms, survival curves, and more — in a fraction of a second.
EASY STATISTICAL MODELING
Build sophisticated statistical models in seconds with Wizard's intuitive modeling interface. Regression estimates are instantly recomputed as you play around with the controls and experiment with new specifications.
Wizard supports drag-and-drop, multi-level Undo, and other interface conveniences that Mac users expect from their software. An interactive tutorial will help you get started.
Dozens of functions are available to help you get data into the form you want. Compute quantiles, perform day-of-week calculations, multiply columns together, and more.
Export colorful graphics as web-friendly PNG or print-quality PDF. If you're surrounded by PC users, export your models as interactive spreadsheets that can be used to run "What if?" scenarios in any version of Microsoft Excel.

LIST OF FILE FORMATS AND DATABASES
Although you have the option to enter data manually, more likely you'll want to import data from one of the following sources:
• Excel (.xls/.xlsx)
• Numbers ('09 and later)
• R workspace and single-object files (.RData and .rds)
• DBF and Microsoft Access
• Plain text (Comma-, tab-, and custom-delimited values)
To import and export other formats, including SPSS, Stata, and SAS, you can either buy In-App Purchases inside Wizard (Wizard > Unlock Pro Features...), or purchase Wizard Pro, also available in the Mac App Store. The set of included importers is the only difference between the Pro and Standard versions.

New in Wizard 1.9:
From Santa's workshop comes Wizard 1.9, an overflowing stocking of new features and functionality. If you thought that Wizard could already do everything when it comes to data transformation and analysis, YOU WERE WRONG. In the biggest release since last year's sleeper hit Wizard 1.8, Wizard 1.9 brings you...
* COLLAPSIBLE FILTERS -- Make the most of screen real estate with the new Pin button -- when activated, it keeps filters applied even when you close the Filters pane.
* DATES, DATES, DATES -- Import dates in your favorite format, format your dates with four exciting date templates, analyze dates with down-to-the-second precision, partition date/time data with greater flexibility, and create Timestamp columns using the number of seconds from a particular start date.
* FILE SIZE FORMATTING -- Does your data set include a file size measured in bytes? Now you can format it with easy-to-read units (KB, MB, GB, etc). There's even an option to switch between the decimal convention (1,000 bytes per kilobyte) and the binary convention (1,024 bytes per kilobyte).
* NEW PIVOT FUNCTIONS -- Standard Error of the Mean and 95% Confidence Interval, now available for your pivoting pleasure.
* ITUNES IMPORTER -- Automatically pull in your music collection and see all the new features in action with the new iTunes importer. Visualize your listening habits by time of day, tally up your music collection by artist and genre, and graph file sizes and track lengths just for kicks. To get started, use the new menu item File > Import iTunes Music Library...
These are just the big-ticket items -- in addition, Wizard 1.9 boasts countless interface tweaks and bug fixes to make your statistical experience as smooth, seamless, and streamlined as possible. Enjoy it on OS X 10.10 (Yosemite) or later.
Ratings and Reviews
I’m not a statistican so much of the high end stat stuff is lost on me, but the simplicity of the interface allows me to quickly see overviews of the data (counts, means, etc.) and to filter and do “pivot” tables so easily you’re invited to explore the data. The regression modeling is also just a few clicks away and is so intuitive you find yourself investigating relationships you never thought of before. The package is also stable with no crazy crashes or mixed up data. Highly recommended.
I would probably give this 4.5 stars, if I could. Importing files, intuitive UX. and pleasing graphics make this pretty great. The support manual is not as helpful as I would like and sometimes is missing text, so unless I picked up something from another part of the manual, I may not always know what the intent of it is. There are also some bugs in functionality, such as I should be able to concatenate two text columns, but that function won't work on my Mac. This app is saving me a lot of manual labor though, and for the price, it's a good deal and sufficient for my needs.
Exactly what I needed for Marketing Purposes
This app just works. No massive UI to navigate, just straight to the point regression modeling (and more, but I use it primarily for covariate modeling). My only tiny critique (personal preference) is the scripty font in the “bottom line” window. I take a lot of screenshots to include in my reports, and that font doesn’t look very professional, so I’ve been having to edit that title in Photoshop.
