Statwing – Making Data Useful

What’s the point in gathering large data sets if you can’t make any sense out of the information you collect? Statwing is an intuitive data analysis application that slices and dices the information you bring in and turns it into easy-to-understand graphics and charts.

The idea behind Statwing is that people should be able to visualize the data they collect without having to use complicated formulas and or understand complex mathematical jargon. Start making sense of your own data sets by signing up for a free account with Statwing and uploading your information. You can paste a spreadsheet or upload a CSV file directly into the Statwing system. Once you upload your data, Statwing will prompt you to select the variables you’re interested in exploring. Statwing will then create an “analysis card” to describe the variables you’ve chosen and present those variables in the form of a graph. Open as many analysis cards as you like to learn how certain variables interact with each other, and then view the “final card,” which shows the statistical relationship between the variables you’ve chosen.

When you use Statwing, you can learn more about the data you’ve collected, and turn your information into useful charts, graphs, and graphics. You can also share the datasets you’ve worked on in Statwing with colleagues by sending them a private link.

Practical Uses:

  • Get more use out of the survey your company recently commissioned
  • Learn more about the data set you’ve been working on
  • Find out how one variable in your data set influences another
  • Predict the outcome of future events based on the data you’ve collected

Insider Tips:

  • Users with paid plans can upload up to 10 data sets
  • Statwing turns data set variables into bar graphs
  • Share data sets with colleagues by sending a private link to Statwing
  • Copy/paste a data set from any spreadsheet into Statwing

What we liked:

  • Statwing helps people understand large sets of complicated data
  • People can upload data sets directly to Statwing
  • Variables are turned into easy-to-understand bar graphs
  • People can use the data they put into Statwing to predict future events

What we didn’t like:

  • Getting started using Statwing can be difficult for a novice statistician
