Calculations, Summaries and Statistics

Once you have your observed data in a spreadsheet, you will often want to add calculated information to the spreadsheet. This may be calculating a new column from other columns, summaries across columns, creating new factors, or summarizing across by groups. These menu items perform calculations on columns in the spreadsheet and retrieve the results as a new column in the spreadsheet.
