Statistical Software Running on Intel-Based Macs
This is only a list of the general or regression software which was sold prior to the launch of Intel Macs. “Universal” means the program can run as both PowerPC and native MacTel. Updated 8-30-12.
If you need to run an older Mac stats program on a MacTel machine, and noticed that they do not support classic, try Basilisk II, which runs OS 8.1 in emulation. Blue is “supposed to work in emulation.” Green is Universal. We took off some of the programs that appear to be dead.
- Aabel and Aabel Stats Plug-in
- GraphPad Prism
- GraphPad InStat - Runs under Rosetta on Intel machines (according to GraphPad)
- GraphPad StatMate - Runs under Rosetta on Intel machines (according to GraphPad)
- JMP as of version 7 (verified Universal by us.)
- Kaleidagraph: 4.1 and later are OK; 4.13 and newer work on Lion.
- kSpectra Toolkit
- MacANOVA: source code is available so you can compile it
- Pro Fit: As of 6.1
- Regress+: The writers say that version 2.53 runs well under Rosetta.
- SPSS 16 and up. If you have this, make sure you’re using 16.02 or newer — earlier versions are buggy.
- SSP: Updated February 2011, should work fine.
- Stata: starting in January 2006! How’s that for support?
- StatisticS: System 7 version still available but Universal Binary introduced in August 2007.
