What is the Simple Crosstab/Frequency Tool?
The Simple Crosstab/Frequency tool allows you to create custom tables and graphs in two easy steps: 1 — select variables and 2 — click the submit button.
No prior experience with the data is needed to select variables for analysis. Select a study on the Analyze Online page and begin building your own custom tables and graphs. This tool can also be accessed from the Dataset(s) section of the study home page.
- "As-you-type" variable selection in the row, column and control fields for all variables in the selected study (the system offers options as you type);
- Modification of results from the output screen; and
- Streamlined handling of weights by removing weight selection if only one weight is available (and required).
The Simple Crosstab/Frequency tool compliments the popular Quick Tables tool that allows users to produce custom tables and graphs for preselected core variables with brief interpretations of results. Currently, Quick Tables are available for NSDUH, TEDS-A, and TEDS-D.
The Simple Crosstab/Frequency tool is powered by the online analysis system (SDA).
