Example Using a Page Column

You have data containing height measurements for male and female students. You want to create a table that shows the sum of the heights by the age of the students. Then you want to stratify your data by sex in different tables. To do so, add the stratification column as a page column, which builds the pages for each group.

1. Select Help > Sample Data Library and open Big Class.jmp.

2. Select Analyze > Tabulate.

Since height is the variable that you are examining, you want it to appear at the top of the table.

3. Click height and drag it into the Drop zone for columns.

You want the statistics by age, and you want age to appear on the side.

4. Click age and drag it into the blank cell next to the number 2502.

6. Click sex and drag it into Page Column.
