Statistics & Multivariate Analysis with XLSTAT-Base, Paris 22-24 May 2019

Subscribe to this statistics training course illustrated with XLSTAT-Base that will be held in Paris (FRANCE). You will learn the basics of descriptive statistics, multivariate data analysis (PCA, CA, AHC), statistical modeling (ANOVA, regression), statistical tests (parametric and nonparametric) as well as machine learning techniques. All of those essential features will be illustrated using the XLSTAT-Base solution. 

Statistics & Multivariate Analysis with XLSTAT-Base, 3-day training

This training goes through most commonly used data analysis methods in a wide variety of fields including research, biostatistics, marketing, sensometrics, finance and industry. The course proposes conceptual and intuitive approaches to descriptive statistics, multivariate data analysis, tests, modeling as well as machine learning. Methods are illustrated with many examples and implementations in XLSTAT-Base, including a thorough interpretation of results. Participants are also given time to practice on real data provided by the trainer. At the end of the training, participants are able to quickly find and implement appropriate statistical methods to answer their own data-related questions, using XLSTAT-Base.


Basic experience in using Microsoft Excel



  • A couple of definitions: individuals, variables, sample, population
  • Making your dataset ready for analysis

Describing data:

  • Quantitative variables: mean, standard deviation, variance, median, quartiles, Histograms, box plots, scatter plots
  • Qualitative variables: frequencies, mode, bar chart, cross tab

Exploring large data sets:
