Abstract : This report contains documentation on eleven separate programs developed for the Hewlett-Packard HP-97 programmable calculator. Nine of these programs are statistical routines that differ from most of the available programs which are designed to receive raw data values as input. Instead, the input for the routines contained in this report is summary information commonly printed out when statistical analyses are performed on large computer systems. By accepting such intermediate data as input, these routines offer several advantages to the researcher. First, it allows him to operate in an interactive mode with the data. For example, one can try several combinations of variables in a regression equation and observe how the beta weights behave as variables are added and deleted. Second, the results are immediately available and can be obtained at any time and wherever the researcher may be. Finally, there is the money saved by reducing the number of analyses run on large computer systems. The documentation of each program includes the type of analyses performed, the input required, and options available. Also, any program limits or special procedures for preparing the data are specified. A step by step set of instructions is provided together with test data and the output that results when the program is properly executed. Finally, the relevant formulas and a program listing are included with each program.
