What's new in Prism 10

Scroll Prev Top Next More


Prism 10 includes some major technological advances, including massive changes under the hood as well as some brand new ways to work with your data and graphs. However, nothing fundamental has changed: if you've been using Prism already, you won't need to re-learn how things work. If you're new to Prism, things are as easy as ever. Prism 10 includes many new features to let you perform the analysis you want, access the results you need, and generate the graphs that will help you present your research effectively. This version of Prism also increases the amount of data you can work with, doubling the amount of data that you can enter into any table.



A brand new file format: a new file format that won't lock away any of your data, analysis parameters and results, or graphs

Graph Inspector: an all-new way to interact with and customize graphs of multiple variables data

Prism Cloud: the easiest way to share and collaborate on the work you do in Prism

Access to more results: a re-designed and dramatically expanded analysis constant dialog with links to more results than ever

Room for more data: double the number of columns in any given data table (now over 2000 columns!)

A new responsive P value summary style: simplify interpretation of your P values regardless of your statistical threshold

New options for two-way ANOVA multiple comparisons: comparisons within rows and within columns in a single step

More data wrangling tools: new transformations available for multiple variables data (IF(), CONCATENATE(), MIN(), MAX(), and more)


Additional Details

An all new file format

Files created in Prism 10 will have the ".prism" file extension

Opening and working with existing (.pzfx or .pzf) files will be seamless via Compatibility Mode

The new file format stores all important content of the file in standard formats within the file itself (CSV for data, JSON for analysis parameters and results, PNG for graphs)



Graph Inspector: a new way to customize multiple variable graphs

Get hands on with a new way to make visual changes to your graph

All of the most commonly used tools for graph customization organized into a side panel and broken down into five tabs:









Prism Cloud

The easiest way to collaborate on your work in Prism

Publish to a Prism Cloud workspace shared with others on your Prism subscription

Share your published work with others

Create discussions on published Prism Cloud projects to get immediate feedback (no more sending emails back and forth!)



Access to more results

Redesigned Analysis Constant (Hook Constant) dialog

Previous versions had limited support for analyses, and had only one level of organization

New dialog supports nearly all analyses, and organizes complete results for each analysis in easy to navigate hierarchical structures

Now allows for linking/inserting the model equation with best-fit parameter values from nonlinear regression onto the graph!

Analysis Constants - NLR



More data... lots more data!

Data tables can now have 2048 columns [letters A...BZT] and 512 sub-columns (that's a possible total of over 1 million values per row).

Graphs can now plot 2048 data sets.


A new responsive P value summary style

Making a decision based on a P value requires knowledge of the value of alpha

Most P value visualizations only consider the P value and not the value of alpha

The new "One or None" P value style takes alpha into consideration for each comparison

o✱ indicates that the P value is smaller than alpha (or that q is smaller than Q for FDR)

ons (or nd) indicates that the P value is larger than alpha (or that q is larger than Q for FDR)

Reduces the possibility of misinterpreting P value summary results when alpha is a value other than 0.05

Used automatically for multiple comparisons corrected with the False Discovery Rate (FDR) method




Two way ANOVA multiple comparison options

New kind of multiple comparison: "Compare cell means with others in its row and its column"

Two-way ANOVA Multiple Comparisons

Choose to compare the means of preselected pairs of cells




Better data wrangling

New transformations for the Select and Transform analysis

oSummary transformations: min(Variable), max(Variable), mean(Variable)

oConcatenate transformation: Concatenate("A","+","B") = "A+B"

oIf function: if(pi(1)>3,"A","B") = "A" (note: pi(1) = 3.14159...)

oNew forms of "And" and "Or" functions: and(value1,value2,...) = (value1 AND value2 AND...)

Row filter controls for Select and Transform to return only rows where values for a given variable are not missing (previously, this analysis could return rows where values ARE missing, but that's often less helpful)

When using extract and rearrange for XY data, define a subject variable to ensure that values are placed into the appropriate subcolumn and subcolumn titles are automatically assigned


Features added since 9.0 you may have missed

Cox Proportional Hazards Regression

An advanced statistical method of survival analysis that allows for the incorporation of any number of predictor variables (both categorical and continuous) into the model

Performed from the multiple variables data table

Semi-parametric analysis capable of generating survival estimates for any individual or group with any combination of predictor variable values



Prism Academy
