Key concepts: Statistical analyses with Prism

To analyze data, start from a data table (or graph, or green results table), and click the Analyze button.

Prism ignores any selection you have made on the data table. If you want to analyze only certain data sets, you can choose that on the Analyze Data dialog.

Prism remembers the links between data, analyses and graphs. If you change (or replace) the data, the analyses and graphs will update automatically.

The best way to learn about analyses is to choose tutorial data sets.
