NIST/SEMATECH Engineering Statistics Handbook
Engineering Statistics Handbook is a web based statistics
handbook oriented towards engineering and scientific
applications. The handbook is being developed as a joint
partnership between the Statistical Engineering Division
of NIST and the Statistical Methods Group of SEMATECH.
Integration of Dataplot and the Handbook
The Handbook is integrated with Dataplot in the following
- Case studies can be run from the handbook using the
Dataplot software. This is currently supported for
Unix and Windows 95/98/NT platforms running the

downloaded and installed
on your local system and your
browser must be configured to run Dataplot macros.
- Dataplot has a
command to access specific pages in the handbook. The
