TAB Training

Interactive data visualization



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


There are exercises for each of the topics covered.


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


  • Introduction to Custom Tables

  • The structure of the tables and the terminology used.

  • Measurement level of the variables


Basic elements of tables

  • The basic components of the table generator interface.

  • The basic characteristics of summary statistics, categories and totals.

  • Tables for categorical variables.

  • Create a cross-tab.

  • Check labels and display formats of summary statistics


  • Tiling, Nesting and Statification

  • Create tables with side by side (stacking).

  • Create nested tables.

  • Create tables with layers.

  • Tables for scale variables.

  • Tiling of  scale variables-

  • Create tables for summary statistics of scale variables grouped into categories.

  • Use of summary statistics for different scale variables.


Totals, Subtotals and Categories

  • Create totals and subtotals for categorical variables.

  • Hide categories for subtotals.

  • Sort and exclude categories.


Calculate new Categories

  • Calculate the differences as part of the Custom Tables procedure.

  • Calculate ratios as part of the Custom Tables procedure.

  • Calculate percentages as part of the Custom Tables procedure.

  • Nest tables with shared categories.


Tables for variables with shared categories

  • Get summary statistics and totals for tables with shared categories.

  • Create tables with percentages and averages.


Multiple choice sets

  • Defining multiple response sets in Statistics for Data Analysis.

  • Create tables with multiple response sets in custom tables.

  • Create co-occurrence tables of multiple response sets in custom tables.

  • 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.

  • Create charts from tables and view large tables.


Advanced Tables - Editing

  • Use the censor tables extension

  • Use the modify tables extension
