Discover What’s New in Prism 8!

Introducing an even more powerful Prism featuring enhanced data visualization and graph customization, more intuitive navigation, and more sophisticated statistical analyses.


Enhanced Data Visualization

Violin plots

Visualize distributions of large data sets more clearly than with box-whisker or simple bar graphs

Subcolumn graphs

Organize related subsets of nested data in a single graph

Smoothing spline

Major improvements in showing general data trends through Akima splines and smoothing splines with improved control over the number of knots, or inflection points

No more smiles

More intelligent adjustments of data point positions in scatter plots for better looking graphs


Improved Graphing and Customization Options

Draw lines and brackets with centered text

Easily annotate your data with asterisks or custom labels

Automatically label bar graphs

Annotate your bar graphs with values for the means, medians, or sample sizes to emphasize what's important in your work

Improved grouped graphs

Easily create graphs that show both individual points (scatter) along with bars for mean (or median) and error bars


More Intuitive Navigation

Find related sheets easily

New family panel shows the family of sheets related to the current sheet, and chains of analyses are automatically indented

Easily navigate between multiple results tables

Analyses with multiple results tables now grouped into a single sheet with tabs for each result table; choose which tabs to show or hide

Improved Search

Search by sheets with highlights or notes of specified color


Now Featuring Eight Kinds of Data Tables

New: Multiple variables data table

Each row represents a different subject and each column is a different variable, allowing you to perform Multiple linear regression (including Poisson regression), extract subsets of data into other table types, or select and transform subsets of the data

New: Nested data table

Analyze and visualize data that contains subsets within related groups; Perform nested t tests and nested one-way ANOVA using data within these tables


More Sophisticated Statistical Analyses

Perform repeated measures ANOVA – even with missing data

Now Prism will automatically fit a mixed effects model to complete this analysis

Powerful Improvements in regular ANOVA

View cell, row, column, and grand means (or least square means when data is missing); test for homogeneity of variance. For one-way ANOVA, choose a test that does not assume homogeneous variances.

Nested t test and nested one-way ANOVA

Utilize new types of data tables to perform nested t-tests and nested ANOVA as well as multiple linear regression (including Poisson regression)

Graph residuals from multiple types of analyses

Test residuals for normality in four different ways, and choose from four different ways to display these residuals

Discover the Breadth of Statistical Features Available in Prism 8

Statistical Comparisons

  • Paired or unpaired t tests. Reports P values and confidence intervals.
  • Automatically generate volcano plot (difference vs. P value) from multiple t test analysis.
  • Nonparametric Mann-Whitney test, including confidence interval of difference of medians.
  • Kolmogorov-Smirnov test to compare two groups.
  • Wilcoxon test with confidence interval of median.
  • Perform many t tests at once, using False Discovery Rate (or Bonferroni multiple comparisons) to choose which comparisons are discoveries to study further.
  • Ordinary or repeated measures ANOVA followed by the Tukey, Newman-Keuls, Dunnett, Bonferroni or Holm-Sidak multiple comparison tests, the post-test for trend, or Fisher’s Least Significant tests.
  • One-way ANOVA without assuming populations with equal standard deviations using Brown-Forsythe and Welch ANOVA, followed by appropriate comparisons tests (Games-Howell, Tamhane T2, Dunnett T3)
  • Many multiple comparisons test are accompanied by confidence intervals and multiplicity adjusted P values.
  • Greenhouse-Geisser correction so repeated measures one-, two-, and three-way ANOVA do not have to assume sphericity. When this is chosen, multiple comparison tests also do not assume sphericity.
  • Kruskal-Wallis or Friedman nonparametric one-way ANOVA with Dunn's post test.
  • Fisher's exact test or the chi-square test. Calculate the relative risk and odds ratio with confidence intervals.
  • Two-way ANOVA, even with missing values with some post tests.
  • Two-way ANOVA, with repeated measures in one or both factors. Tukey, Newman-Keuls, Dunnett, Bonferroni, Holm-Sidak, or Fisher’s LSD multiple comparisons testing main and simple effects.
  • Three-way ANOVA (limited to two levels in two of the factors, and any number of levels in the third).
  • Analysis of repeated measures data (one-, two-, and three-way) using a mixed effects model (similar to repeated measures ANOVA, but capable of handling missing data).
  • Kaplan-Meier survival analysis. Compare curves with the log-rank test (including test for trend).
  • Comparison of data from nested data tables using nested t test or nested one-way ANOVA (using mixed effects model).

Nonlinear Regression

  • Fit one of our 105 built-in equations, or enter your own. Now including family of growth equations: exponential growth, exponential plateau, Gompertz, logistic, and beta (growth and then decay).

  • Mean or geometric mean with confidence intervals.
  • Frequency distributions (bin to histogram), including cumulative histograms.

  • Analyze a stack of P values, using Bonferroni multiple comparisons or the FDR approach to identify "significant" findings or discoveries.

Linear Regression and Correlation

  • Calculate slope and intercept with confidence intervals
  • Force the regression line through a specified point.
