Instructional Videos

This page presents a series of statistics videos created by the developers of STATGRAPHICS Centurion, designed to help you get the most value from the program. These online statistics tutorials are presented by Dr. Neil Polhemus, the original creator of STATGRAPHICS more than 30 years ago and current CTO of Statpoint Technologies Inc. The statistics videos will teach you not only how to use the program but also many of the statistical concepts on which the procedures are built. If there are other topics you'd like to see discussed in these statistics videos, please contact support@statgraphics.com for suggestions on our online statistics tutorials.
