ChemStat Requirements: PC 486/Pentium running Windows 95/98/2000/NT with 8 MB RAM.

See ChemPoint - RCRA and CERCLA Ground-Water Analysis Database for Windows for use with ChemStat.

ChemStat provides extensive color selection for graph and report items. Samples showing statistically elevated levels of contamination detects can be displayed in different colors than other samples, or with shaded background to indicate statistically significant contamination when printed in black-and-white.

The Advisor Window provides a description of the selected test and advises about the suitability of the test for the data set (i.e., too few samples, too many non-detects, etc.).).


ChemStat includes full print and print preview for all graphs and reports.

  • Easily select parameter for analysis from drop-down list
  • Complete on-line help
  • On-line tutorial
  • Tip-of-the-day
  • Advisor Window displays information about the method and suitability of the method to the data set
  • Import Wizard to simplify data acquisition

ChemStat data acquisition. . .

  • Import Wizard takes you step-by-step through acquisition
  • Reads tab-delimited ASCII file
  • Convert from GRITS/STAT or ChemPoint formats
  • Extensive filtering of import files to read different combinations of data from a single file
  • Saves data in binary format
  • Option to exclude parameters with 100% non-detects
  • Option to exclude parameters with "R" data qualifier
  • Easily accept duplicate or replicate sample values, or average duplicates and replicates to give one value for the date

ChemStat includes a highly-customizable Control Chart for intra-well comparisons.


ChemStat includes easy-to-use Windows 95 interface features such as context-sensitive on-line help, Tip of the Day screen on startup, recent file lists, customizable printing with print-preview, spin buttons for numerical data entry, and more. Parameters and wells for analysis are selected from a drop-down list box on the main window tool bar.

ChemStat is not a database, but is designed specifically for statistical analysis of data. Data is imported from tab-delimited ASCII text files. Utilities to convert data from GRITS/STAT and ChemPoint formats are included. Importing accommodates filtering by start and end date, facility ID, and parameter suite. It also accepts comparison levels such as MCL for each parameter.

To reduce data set size, ChemStat has options to exclude all parameters with 100% non-detects. Results can be averaged for multiple samples on the same date (duplicates and replicates). Wells can be classified as up-gradient, down-gradient, or unused, and the well gradient can be changed.

ChemStat can perform any analysis on the original data or the natural log of the data. Easily represent non-detects by DL, 1/2 DL, 1, or 0. Normality tests can be used on the actual data or the residuals as required for parametric ANOVA.

ChemStat includes an Advisor Window which provides information about the selected method. If the data set is not suitable for the selected method such as too few samples or too many non-detects, the Advisor Window displays warnings or such unsuitability.


ChemStat - RCRA Subtitle C and D statistical analysis software for ground-water monitoring

ChemStat Categories: solid waste management, monitoring

ChemStat Description

ChemStat is a Windows 95/NT-based program for fast and accurate analysis of ground-water monitoring data at RCRA facilities. Analysis methods in ChemStat comply with 1989 and 1992 US EPA statistical guidance documents (included with the program). ChemStat is not a converted DOS program but is written as a 32-bit Windows 95/NT program from the first line of code. ChemStat is fast and powerful. The number of samples and number of wells are limited only by available computer memory. ChemStat has been tested on data sets with up to 5,000 samples.
