Contingency Platform Options

Note: The Fit Group menu appears if you have specified multiple Y variables. Menu options enable you to arrange reports or order them by RSquare. See Fit Group Options in Fitting Linear Models.

Use the platform options within the red triangle menu next to Contingency Analysis to perform additional analyses and tests on your data.

Mosaic Plot

A graphical representation of the data in the Contingency Table. See Mosaic Plot.

Contingency Table

A two-way frequency table. There is a row for each factor level and a column for each response level. See Contingency Table.


Analogous to the Analysis of Variance table for continuous data. The tests show that the response level rates are the same across X levels. See Tests.

Set α level

Changes the alpha level used in confidence intervals. Select one of the common values (0.10, 0.05, 0.01) or select a specific value using the Other option.

Analysis of Means for Proportions

(Appears only if the response has exactly two levels.) Compares response proportions for the X levels to the overall response proportion. See Analysis of Means for Proportions.

Correspondence Analysis

Shows which rows or columns of a frequency table have similar patterns of counts. In the correspondence analysis plot, there is a point for each row and for each column of the contingency table. See Correspondence Analysis.

Cochran Mantel Haenszel

Tests if there is a relationship between two categorical variables after blocking across a third classification. See Cochran-Mantel-Haenszel Test.

Agreement Statistic

(Appears only when the X and Y variables have the same levels.) Displays the Kappa statistic (Agresti 1990), its standard error, confidence interval, hypothesis test, and Bowker’s test of symmetry, also know as McNemar's test. See Agreement Statistic.

Relative Risk

(Appears only when the X and Y variables have two levels.) Calculates risk ratios. See Relative Risk.

Odds Ratio

(Appears only when the X and Y variables have two levels.) Produces a report of the odds ratio. See Odds Ratio Option.

The report also gives a confidence interval for this ratio. You can change the alpha level using the Set α Level option.

Two Sample Test for Proportions

(Appears only when the X and Y variables have two levels.) Performs a two-sample test for proportions. This test compares the proportions of the Y variable between the two levels of the X variable. See Two Sample Test for Proportions.

Measures of Association

Describes the association between the variables in the contingency table. See Measures of Association.

Cochran Armitage Trend Test

(Appears only when one variable has two levels and the other variable is ordinal.) Tests for trends in binomial proportions across levels of a single variable. See Cochran Armitage Trend Test.

Exact Test

Provides exact versions of the following tests:

Fisher’s Test

Cochran Armitage Trend Test

Agreement Statistic

See Exact Test.

Display Options > Horizontal Mosaic

Rotates the mosaic plot horizontally or vertically.

Make Into Data Table

Creates a JMP data table from the report table.

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.


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.
