Using SOFA

SOFA can be used to:

  • make charts e.g. Pie Charts
  • produce attractive report tables on your data e.g. gender vs age
  • run basic statistical tests e.g. one-way ANOVAs
  • and generally increase your understanding of your data.

SOFA is great for initial research and exploratory analysis - or as someone put it rather nicely, “statistical/mathematical doodling”. It doesn't have every statistical test you could possibly need, but for many purposes it has more than enough. And the plan is to gradually extend SOFA over time without compromising the emphasis on ease of use, beautiful output, and learn as you go.
