The amount of software that is available is astounding. In doing research there are so many options for researchers to use programs to aide in the collection and processing of data. It is interesting that in most programs that the user can simply type in the equations and have them solved. This is so beneficial to people needing to validate a study but that don't have the availability to a statistician. I was really impressed with the availibilty of online statistical analysis. There are web sites for statistics in every field.
I think that this is so beneficial for people in sport and kinesiology. It provides a way for professionals in these fields to update their information and use data to support their theories and hypothesis.
