Statistica Libraries and Modules

All statistical procedures and graphs and their customization are available as properties or functions to Statistica Visual Basic (SVB).

In order to provide a transparent programming environment for the user, the analysis objects and properties belonging to those objects are arranged to correspond to the respective flow of options and dialog boxes, as if the respective analyses were performed interactively. In addition, a large number of properties, functions, constants, and events (subroutines associated with particular user-initiated events performed in documents; e.g., right-clicking on a results spreadsheet) are available to manage documents, files, and various general analysis options. To review the libraries and scope of the installation of SVB on your computer, display the Object Browser: Create a new macro (select New from the File menu; on the Create New Document dialog box, select the Macro (SVB) Program tab, and create a macro), and then select Object Browser from the View menu.

*The ANOVA Results dialog box functions are accessible via the General Linear Models library.

The Distribution Fitting module functions and routines are part of the Nonparametrics library.

The Principal Components and Classification Analysis techniques are accessible via the Factor Analysis library.

Note 1: The list of modules and procedures and Statistica libraries available to Visual Basic is constantly growing.

Note 2: The Graphs menu graphs are all part of the Statistica main reference library; you can review the respective constants to instantiate a particular analysis (graph type) in the Object Browser.
