You can choose summary statistics for either the raw or working data sheets. Statistics can be generated for Rows, columns and general summary statistics for the data. These statistics are particularly useful prior to undertaking many analyses. For example analyses should not be undertaken on a data set that comprises large numbers of zeros. Use Summary statistics to determine the number of zero elements in your data.

 

To obtain general statistics on the raw data select the Raw Data radio button in the 'Use' panel situated below the grid to select Raw Data.

Statistics for the individual rows and columns of either the raw or working data matrix are selected using the Statistics radio buttons situated below the grid.

 

Values for each row or column are shown numbered in the order they appear in the original data matrix. The statistics calculated are as follows:

Mean - This is the mean of all the values in the data matrix.

Median - This is the median of all the values in the data matrix.

Max - This is the maximum value in the data matrix.

Min - This is the minimum value in the data matrix.

Zeros - This is the number of zero entries in the data matrix.

Non-zeros - This is the number of non-zero entries in the data matrix.

% Zeros - (Number of zeros/Total number of cells) * 100

Sum - This is the sum of all the values in each row or column in the data matrix.

SumSqr - This is the sums of squares of all the values in each row or column in the data matrix.

Variance - This is the variance of all the values in each row or column in the data matrix.

Skewness - This is the skewness of all the values in each row or column in the data matrix.

Kurtosis - This is the kurtosis of all the values in each row or column in the data matrix.
