is a CSPro tool that allows you to display a frequency distribution of a dictionary item or set of items in a given data file. The distribution can be based on its value set(s). For example, you could have defined several value sets such as "age in 5 year age groups," "level of education," or "type of occupation." Tabulate Frequencies gives you both the numeric count and percentage distribution for the selected items. It also gives the cumulative distributions and, optionally, certain statistics for each item. Both weighted and unweighted
frequencies can be produced.
Tabulate Frequencies is found on the CSPro Tools menu under "Tabulate Frequencies." To start the Tabulate Frequencies program, select this option from the menu.
You produce a frequency report by:
- Opening a frequencies specifications file (*.fqf) or a CSPro dictionary describing the file from which you wish to get frequency distributions.
- Choosing the item(s) for which you wish to produce frequency distributions.
- Defining a universe (if desired).
- Specifying a weight (if desired).
- Specifying the type of frequency, whether you want statistics, and other options.
- Tabulating the frequencies.
