Example of Combining Columns into a Single Table

You have data from students indicating the importance of self-reported factors in children’s popularity (grades, sports, looks, money). Suppose that you want to see all of these factors in a single, combined table with additional statistics and factors.

Figure 9.19 Adding Demographic Data 

1. Select Help > Sample Data Library and open Children’s Popularity.jmp.

2. Select Analyze > Tabulate.

3. Select Grades, Sports, Looks, and Money and drag them into the Drop zone for rows.

Figure 9.20 Columns by Categories 

Notice that a single, combined table appears.

Tabulate the percentage of the one to four ratings of each category.

4. Drag Gender into the empty heading at left.

5. Drag % of Total above the numbered headings.

6. Drag All beside the number 4.

Figure 9.21 Gender, % of Total, and All Added to the Table 

Break down the tabulation further by adding demographic data.

7. Drag Urban/Rural below the % of Total heading.

Figure 9.22 Urban/Rural Added to the Table
