TAB Training

Interactive data visualization

 

Goals:

Deepen the knowledge of Statistics Tables in all its potential for reporting and data analysis

Techniques presented:

All the main advanced and customized reporting techniques will be illustrated, such as tiling, nesting and stratification, the calculation of new categories, multiple choice sets and statistical tests

Tutorials:

There are exercises for each of the topics covered.

Prerequisites:  

Attendance at the INTRO course or having an intermediate knowledge of Statistics for Data Analysis is a prerequisite

Subjects:

  • Introduction to Custom Tables

  • The structure of the tables and the terminology used.

  • Create tables with multiple response sets and other variables.

 

Statistics Tests

  • Use statistical tests to verify the independence of the variables.

  • Use statistical tests for comparing column proportions.

  • Use statistical tests to compare column means.

 

Formatting and editing tables within Custom Tables

  • Change data cell appearance.

  • Hide cells with low values.

  • Add titles, captions and corner texts to tables.

 

Formatting and editing Tables outside Custom Tables

  • Use the features of the Pivot Table Editor.

  • Change cell and table properties.

  • Change the default TableLook applied to tables.

 

Missing values

  • The default handling of missing values.

  • Include missing values in tables.

  • Get totals net of missing values.

 

Moving tables from other software

  • Using the clipboard to export output to other applications.

  • Using the Export Tool for PivotTables.

  • Use of the OMS (Output Management System) functionality to manage the export of the statistics tables obtained in Statistics for Data Analysis.

 

Introduction to the Syntax for Custom Tables

  • Syntax creation and execution.

  • Description and use of the features of the Syntax Editor.

 

Using syntax for recurring analysis

  • Produce multiple tables using syntax.

  • Make simple syntax changes.

  • Get the syntax from the journal file.

  • Describe and use the features of the Production Job dialog.

 

Special tables for objective

  • Create tables for comparing specific groups.

  • Create tables for the differences between the variables.

  • Create tables for aspect ratios (ratios)

  • Create tables for differences in count variables.

 

Table recommendations

  • Initial placement of variables.

  • Create tables with percentages and averages.
