I’ve been trying to find good analysis tools for analyzing QS data. Since it looks like most of the existing topics are several years old at this point, it’s probably a good time to ask again: What are the best analysis tools out there?
Are you looking for instant noodles, or for cookbooks?
Either one is fine; though I’d prefer prebuilt tools over something I’d have to write myself.
Tools that let you do your own analysis, or tools that provide pre-canned “actionable insights”.
Yes, again, either is fine. I’m not looking for a particular solution, but rather I want to start compiling a list of tools as a reference for the community.
Here’s a few that I’ve noticed around the web:
- Your very own Zenobase. It provides data import from a number of different sources and some analysis capabilities, including linear lines of best fit and basic correlation detection with confidence intervals.
- StatWing, an online statistics tool. It’s currently in closed pre-release so I can’t really speak to its features; older reviews seem to indicate it will do two-variable correlation analyses and give general statistics on your dataset.
- Wizard, an OSX-only stats app. It’s more expensive than the other options ($79) but provides multivariate modeling and more options for statistical testing along with a prediction feature which uses the generated models.
Here are some more services that integrate with QS data sources: https://zenobase.uservoice.com/knowledgebase/articles/360890-how-does-zenobase-compare-to-other-services
There are many general-purpose data analysis tools, but most have a steep learning curve. Tableau Public is a useful data visualization tool that can be used without having to invest too much time.
