JASP: A Less Complicated Free Open-source SPSS Alternative for Advanced Statistics
Some time ago, We published an article listing all available open-source free SPSS alternatives, today we will focus on one of that list's lead "JASP".
I had a run with many open-source statistics software and packages, but JASP was truly unique among them.
JASP is a free open-source complete statistical package supported by University of Amsterdam. It's a multi-platform program that runs on Windows, Linux and macOS.
It's designed for users who want to do some statistical work without having to deal with programming or dive deep in learning complex statistical programs. It's a recommended option for students and researchers.
