Looking for a Computer Program

So, I am working on a project with my aunt to update my family genealogy. My cousin wrote a book 30 years ago and we are trying to update it and include some new stuff. One of my ideas was to provide some statistics about our family, such as average age of marriage, age of death, number of kids, most common names for men and women, list of other surnames that married into ours, etc. There are hundreds of people in the book, however, and it would be very cumbersome to do it all by hand. So, I figured I could type all the info into an excel sheet and do it from there.

Does anyone know of a good program that I can just plug in data, in excel format preferably, and pop out stats? Preferably free and online. I may be able to do what I want in excel, but I know there are other programs out there that can do it a lot easier. Someone told me Mac has a program that would do the job, but I have a PC.

Any help is appreciated. Thanks.

EDIT: Excel does all that stuff. Nevermind. Close please.

So's your family famous/important? Would I have heard of them?

I mean, clearly they are to you, but as the subject of a book? Or is the book actually about genealogy just using our family as the case study?

Its a book about my family's history and lineage, tracing back to 3 dudes born in the late 1800s. Its just for us. By book, I meant "a bunch of papers glued together and sold at cost" so that people in our family can learn more about themselves.
