Crosstabulation and Stub-and-Banner Tables

Select the Quick tab of the Crosstabulation Tables Results dialog box to access options to quickly review the most commonly requested statistics and graphs for this analysis. More results and graphs are available on the Advanced tab.

Summary: Review summary tables. Click the Summary: Review summary tables button to produce summary tables for multi-way crosstabulation tables. If more than one table was specified, the Select the tables you want to review dialog box will be displayed, where you can select the table(s) to be displayed. The summary crosstabulation table will report the frequencies for the entire respective table; the last variable (factor) that makes up the table will be tabulated in the columns of the spreadsheet and all remaining variables (factors) will be tabulated in the rows. If there are more than two variables (factors) in a table, the structure of the table will be as if several two-way tables (for the last two factors) were "glued" together one-after-another for the different levels of the remaining factors. In this manner, even 6-way tables can be reviewed in a single spreadsheet. The detail of results that are reported depends on the selections of options in the Compute tables group box (Options tab). Note that, if Expected frequencies or Residual frequencies are requested, they will be computed simultaneously for the entire multi-way table, via iterative proportional fitting (e.g., see Haberman, 1972, 1974; see also the Log-Linear Analysis module). Specifically, expected frequencies are computed contingent upon the single-factor marginal tables, that is, it is assumed that there are no interactions between factors in the table. For three- or higher-way tables, these values will be different from those that are displayed when Detailed two-way tables are requested (Advanced tab), where the expected frequencies are computed based on the respective two-way tables alone.

Stub-and-banner table. Click the Stub-and-banner table button to produce a summary stub-and-banner table. This option is only available (active) if the table was specified on the Stub-and-banner tab of the Crosstabulation Tables dialog box. In general, stub-and-banner tables are two-way tables where one list is tabulated in the columns (horizontally) and the second list is tabulated in the rows (vertically) of the spreadsheet. The detail of reported results depends on the choices of options in the Compute tables box on the Options tab.

3D histograms. Click the 3D histograms button to produce 3D histograms for selected tables. This option is only available (active) if the table was specified on the Stub-and-banner tab of the Crosstabulation Tables dialog box. If more than one table is specified, the Select the tables you want to review dialog box will be displayed, where you can select the table(s) for the plot(s). Each 3D histogram will summarize the joint frequency distribution for two variables (factors); it is in a sense the graphical equivalent to the Detailed two-way tables option (see the Advanced tab).

Categorized histograms. Click the Categorized
histograms button to produce categorized
histograms for selected tables. This option is only available (active)
if the table was specified on the Crosstabulation
tab
