I have no experience but I am looking to make a program (mainly for my own amusement and use) and need to know which programming language or software you would recommend to make it.
Esentially, I want to make a program for data analysis that has rows/columns to enter my data, just like one would in excel/spss, but that also has a menu on the side so I can make a table (or tables) with the information I want (descriptive stats (mean, median, sd, etc.), correlations, etc.) for which ever variables I choose via check boxes.
So for example, I could have all of my variables check boxes clicked and the mean check box to only see the means for each variable, but then if I am interested in the median I can select that check box and the table will update to now include the median. I would just code in the math to caluclate these things if the language/software to make it didn't have a way of doing the math automatically (like I said I have no knowledge whatsoever in this kind of thing). If the program would be too hard to make that actually had the spreadsheet like area to enter in the data, I would be fine with having my data in an excel spreadsheet and the program taking the data from there.
Hopefully what I am wanting to do makes sense. Any recommendations would be very helpfully.
Thanks for your time!
