What are cases and variables?

STATISTICA data files are organized into cases and variables. If you are not familiar with this notation, you can think of cases as the equivalent of records in a database management program (or rows of a spreadsheet) and variables as the equivalent of fields (columns of a spreadsheet). Each case consists of a set of values of variables.

See the Spreadsheet Overview for information on the organization of data files in STATISTICA. See also, Range of Numeric Values that Can Be Entered or Stored in Cells.
