Coding Column Property and Center Polynomials

The Center Polynomials option is located in the Fit Model launch window, within the Model Specification red triangle menu. Center Polynomials centers a continuous column involved in a polynomial term by subtracting the mean of each value in the column. See Center Polynomials in Fitting Linear Models.

If the Coding column property is assigned to a column, then the Center Polynomials option has no effect on that column. In a polynomial term involving that column, the values are centered and scaled as specified by their Coding property. Suppose that another column in the model does not have the Coding property and that you select Center Polynomials. Then that column is centered by its mean in any polynomial term where it appears.
