Additional Categorical Platform Options

The following options enable you to add summary statistics to the report, save reports, and set report formats.

Summary Statistics Options

Total Responses

Shows or hides the sum of the frequency counts for the response in crosstab tables and share charts. When a grouping variable is specified, the total is across each grouping category.

Response Levels

Shows or hides the categories for the response column in crosstab tables and share charts.

Show Supercategories

(Available only when one or more supercategories is defined.) Shows or hides columns for supercategories in the crosstab table and the Frequency Chart. For more information about supercategories, see Supercategories.

Tip: This option shows or hides the Supercategories. To hide the individual categories within the supercategory, use the Hide option in the Supercategories column property. Alternatively, use the Response Levels option to hide all response levels so that only Supercategories remain unhidden.

Total Cases

(Available only for multiple response columns.) Shows or hides a column in the crosstab table that contains the number of cases (participants) in each group.

Total Cases Responding

(Available only for multiple response columns.) Shows or hides a column in the crosstab table that contains the number of cases (participants) who responded at least once. Participants who did not respond at all are not included. The total cases responding is less than or equal to the total cases.

Mean Score

Shows or hides a column in the crosstab table and share chart that contains the overall mean of the response or the mean for each grouping category. The mean is calculated based on a numerical value assigned to each response category.

For numeric categories, the numeric value is the actual value.

For non-numeric categories the value is the value assigned to the categories by the Value Scores column property.

For categories without value scores, the value is based on a default assignment of 1 to the number of categories.

See Example of Mean Score with Comparison Letters.

Mean Score Comparisons

Shows or hides the Compare Means column in the crosstab table. This column compares the mean scores across grouping categories using the unpooled Satterthwaite t test for pairwise comparisons. See the TTEST Procedure chapter in SAS Institute Inc. (2018). The results of the comparison are shown using letters. For more information about comparison letters, see Comparison Letters. For more information about specifying comparison groups, see Example of User-Specified Comparison with Comparison Letters.

Std Dev Score

Shows or hides a column in the crosstab table that contains the overall standard deviation of the response or the standard deviation of each grouping category.

Order by Mean Score

(Appears only when more than one response is specified and there are no grouping variables in the analyses.) Orders the response reports by the mean score.

Save Options

Save Tables

Contains options to save specific portions of the reports to a new data table. Each option creates an individual data table for each report. The options available in this menu depend on your selected analysis. The saved tables all include a Source script.

Note: Supercategories are not included in the new tables.

Save Frequencies

Saves the frequency counts from the crosstab table to a new data table.

Save Share of Responses

Saves the share of responses from the crosstab table to a new data table.

Save Contingency Table

Saves the complete crosstab table to a new data table.

Save Rate Per Case

Saves the rates per case from the crosstab table to a new data table.

Save Transposed Frequencies

Saves the transposed frequency counts from the crosstab table to a new data table.

Save Transposed Share of Responses

Saves the transposed share of responses from the crosstab to a new data table.

Save Transposed Rate Per Case

Saves the transposed rates per case from the crosstab table to a new data table.

Save Test Rates

Saves the results of the Test Multiple Response option to a new data table.

Save Test Homogeneity

Saves the results of the Test Response Homogeneity option to a new data table.

Save Mean Scores

Saves the mean scores for each sample group to a new data table.

Save tTests and pValues

Save t tests and p-values from the Mean Score Comparisons report to a new data table.

Save Excel File

(Available only on Windows.) Creates a Microsoft Excel spreadsheet with the structure of the crosstab table. This option maps all of the tables to one sheet, with the response categories as rows, the sample levels as columns, and sharing the headings for sample levels across multiple tables. When there are multiple elements in each table cell, you have the option to make them multiple or single cells in Microsoft Excel.

Report Format Options

Filter

Shows or hides the local data filter that enables you to filter the data used in a specific report.

Contents Summary

Shows or hides a Contents Summary report at the top of the Categorical report. The Contents Summary report contains all of the tests and mean scores in a summary that has links to the associated report.

Show Columns Used in Report

(Available only with SPSS or SAS names.) Shows or hides Columns Used in Report information. This option affects only columns that have an SPSS or SAS Name or SPSS or SAS Label column property.

Tip: When you import survey data from SAS or SPSS, the Name and Label column properties are automatically added to your JMP table. You can add a SAS or SPSS Name or Label column property using the Other column property. For example, if you use the SAS or SPSS Name column property to store a survey question, the column name can be a short name.

Format Elements

Enables you to specify formats for Frequencies, Shares, Rates, and Means.

Arrange in Rows

Enables you to arrange multiple reports across the window. Enter the number of reports that you want to view across the window.

Set Preferences

Enables you to set preferences for future launches of the Categorical platform in the current JMP session and in future JMP sessions. See Set Preferences.

Category Options

Contains options (Grouping Option, Count Missing Responses, Order Response Levels High to Low, Shorten Labels, and Include Responses Not in Data) that are also available on the launch window. If these options are selected here, the platform updates with the new setting. For more information about the Category Options, see Other Launch Window Options.

Force Crosstab Shading

Forces shading on Crosstab reports even if the preference is set to no shading. If this option is not selected, the Crosstab reports are shaded according to the current setting of the Shade Alternate Table Rows preference.

Relaunch Dialog

Enables you to return to the launch window and edit the specifications for an analysis.

See Local Data Filter, Redo Menus, and Save Script Menus in Using JMP for more information about the following options:

Local Data Filter

Shows or hides the local data filter that enables you to filter the data used in a specific report.

Redo

Contains options that enable you to repeat or relaunch the analysis. In platforms that support the feature, the Automatic Recalc option immediately reflects the changes that you make to the data table in the corresponding report window.

Save Script

Contains options that enable you to save a script that reproduces the report to several destinations.

Save By-Group Script

Contains options that enable you to save a script that reproduces the platform report for all levels of a By variable to several destinations. Available only when a By variable is specified in the launch window.
