Multiple-response tables
Displays two additional options for producing summaries of tables classified by multiple-response factors.
Pointers to factors defining multiple responses
A pointer to factors defining multiple responses in the table. You can form a pointer to factors for a multiple-response table using the form multiple-response factors menu.
Names for factors to index multiple-responses
Genstat generates an ordinary factor to classify each dimension of the table corresponding to multiple responses. You can specify names for these factors in the space provided.
Action buttons
Run | Run tabulation of groups. |
Cancel | Close the dialog without further changes. |
Defaults | Reset options to the default settings. Clicking the right mouse on this button produces a shortcut menu where you can choose to set the options using the currently stored defaults or the Genstat default settings. |
