Bar Charts

Wednesday, January 16, 2013

Bar charts are a great way of visualizing how quantitative (or numeric) variable changes for a given categorical variable.

In Stats Pad select Bar Chart from the graphs tab of the menu.

Enter titles if desired.

Select the quantitative data, which can be in rows or columns, (not including labels) and tap the data button. This data will define the heights of the bars.

Using labels is optional. Labels define the categorical variable levels for your bar chart. Select the labels and tap the labels button.

Double tapping the chart will display the graph edit menu where you can change colors and labels for the chart.
