Cergy is a commune in the northwestern suburbs of Paris, France. It is located 27.8 km from the centre of Paris, in the "new town" of Cergy-Pontoise, created in the 1960s, of which it is the central and most populated commune. Although neighbouring Pontoise is the official préfecture of the Val-d'Oise département, the préfecture building and administration, as well as the department council, are located inside the commune of Cergy, regarded as the de facto capital of Val-d'Oise; the sous-préfecture building and administration, on the other hand, are located inside the commune of Pontoise. The name Cergy comes from Medieval Latin Sergiacum, meaning "estate of Sergius", a Gallo-Roman landowner. Cergy is the chief town of two cantons: Cergy-1 and Cergy-2. Columbia, United States. Erkrath, Germany. Liaoyang, People's Republic of China. Porto Novo, Benin. Tres Cantos, Spain West Lancashire, United Kingdom. Cergy is informally twinned with a village in Palestine and a village in Senegal; when Cergy was selected to become the center of a "new town", it was only a village.

The commune had only 2,895 inhabitants in 1968. It started to develop quickly, exceeding 10,000 inhabitants in the mid-1970s and 20,000 in the early-1980s, it is in this decade that its growth was most spectacular, since the city exceeded 48,000 inhabitants in 1990. The increase continued since, but at a notably slower pace. However, on 1 January 2000, the commune lost a portion of its territory to the adjacent commune of Courdimanche; the official census figures have thus been revised downward from the 1999 official 54,781 to 54,719, the land area from 11.68 km2 to 11.65 km². Port Cergy is a marina on the River Oise at pk 9; the site comprises recreational yachts as well as a boating school. The marina can hold 103 ships ranging 5 to 22m long and; the northern part of the site is reserved for restaurants and shops and have been built around a small bain. Ham is a small village to the south of Cergy; the village used to be part of the Sergentery and commune of Neuville-sur-Oise but has since been amalgamated in the commune of Cergy.

On its territory is the outdoor leisure centre'Base de Loisirs de Cergy-Neuville'. Cergy is served by three stations on Paris RER line A and on the Transilien Paris – Saint-Lazare suburban rail line: Cergy – Préfecture, Cergy – Saint-Christophe, Cergy – Le Haut. Cergy is served by direct buses from Charles de Gaulle Airport; the bus company STIVO provides 17 lines of buses to travel within the agglomeration of Cergy. Secondary schools: Junior high schools: Gérard Philipe, La Justice, Les Explorateurs, Les Touleuses, Moulin à Vent Senior high schools/sixth-form colleges: Lycée polyvalent Galilée and Lycée polyvalent Jules VerneLycée Alfred Kastler de Cergy-Pontoise is in neighbouring Pontoise.

Reaching, in the year of 2008, a rate of 9,87 criminal incidents per 1000 inhabitants, still a high criminal rate. The town was used as a filming location for Henri Verneuil's film I... comme Icare released in 1979, starring Yves Montand. The EDF-GDF tower designed by architect Renzo Moro is the building from which the shots were fired to assassinate president Marc Jarry; the country that the movie depicts is not named, although the United States is suggested. The filmmakers chose the modern and innovative architecture of the new city to avoid depicting any particular country.

However with its clear benefits, Dap hasn't been updated since 2014 and hasn't seen widespread use when compared to other statistical analysis programs. Dap is a command line driven program. Below are various features. DAP can compute ANOVA from data sets; this includes Unbalanced as well as Crossed, Nested ANOVA. It can be used to create scatterplots, line graphs and histograms of data; this can include treatment combinations, as well as latin squares. DAP can utilize regressions to build linear models. In addition to linear regression, DAP can perform logistic regression analysis as well.

There's a variety of other analysis that DAP can do as well including building loglinear models as well as Logit models for linear-by-linear association. In terms of models, DAP can create mixed balanced and unbalanced models as well as random unbalanced models, it has been designed so as to cope with large data sets.
