Abstract:

The report discusses the development of an on-line computing system which facilitates the preparation and use on conversational units for statistical analysis. The basic assumptions underlying this development were That a researcher wants to use such a system even though his background in statistics and computation is limited That he should be able to do this without having to learn much statistics and computer programming. Through this system a statistician is able to prepare conversational units, and a lay user is able to perform his analysis on the basis of such units. The experimental terminal is the IBM 2250 graphics display in the Statistics Department on-line to the IBM 36065 in the Computer Center, both departments being located in the Graduate Studies Research Center.
