EasyReg icon EasyReg International [Current version: May 27, 2015] is a free (but powerful) interactive econometrics software package, written in Visual Basic 5. EasyReg (Easy Regression) conducts various elementary, intermediate, and advanced econometric estimation, testing, and data analysis tasks on 32 bit and 64 bit Windows platforms, just by clicking the mouse.
