If you click on the 'ANALYSIS' – 'Statistics' tab and select 'Means' from the 'Select:' dropdown menu, an average is generated over the categorical variable or the independent variable with categories, which you can compare with the dependent variable, which we recommend to be numeric.
In the first option, you select the independent variable (categorical) from the drop-down list, and in the second option, you select the dependent variable (numerical). The system generates a table with the averages by category and the number of all units in the survey. To display the results in graphical form, enable the 'Show graphs' option to the right of the drop-down menus.
2KA and 3KA package users as well as users of the business packages for groups can export the means table to PDF, MS Word or MS Excel formats. These users can also analyse satatistics with advanced analysis options and filter them according to segments, zoom, groups, variables, conditions, missing values, time period and unit status.
The analysis settings are located in the upper right corner in the form of a 'wheel' icon. Here you can set:
