R-Instat is a free, open source statistical software that is easy to use, even with low computer literacy. It encourages good statistical practices and learning, by opening the door for training to emphasis concepts rather than theory.

This software is designed to support improved statistical literacy in Africa and beyond, through work undertaken primarily within Africa.

In resource rich environments, students should ideally become familiar with more than one package and R-Instat might sometimes be a useful addition to the mix. In resource poor environments R-Instat combined with R-Studio is designed to be sufficient for student needs.

Latest beta version of R-Instat is available on the R-Instat website download page.
