Command:Graphs
Next selectMultiple variables graphs

Description

Creates graphs that allow to compare different variables, i.e. data entered in different columns of the spreadsheet.

The graph can be composed from different elements: Bars, Horizontal lines, Markers and or Connecting lines for mean or median, with choice of different error bars for mean (95% CI, 1 SEM, 1 SD, 2 SD, 3 SD, range) or median (95% CI, 25-75 percentiles, 10-90 percentiles, 5-95 percentiles, 2.5-97.5 percentiles, 1-99 percentiles, range), Box-and-whisker plot or Notched box-and-whisker plot, Violin plot, Dot plot (display all data), Dot and line diagram (Ladder plot), or Cumulative frequency distribution.

Required input

In the dialog box, you can enter the different variables of interest, followed by one filter to include only a selected subgroup of cases in the graph.

Multiple variables graph - dialog box

Several elements can be selected to compose the graph, and some of these can be combined.

You can select the Logarithmic transformation option, or the option to include only complete cases in the graph. If the latter option is selected, only cases with valid numerical data for all variables entered in the dialog box will be included in the graph.
