Create Tables with a New Simple Tool
SAMHDA announces a new tool for creating frequencies and crosstabulations. This tool presents a streamlined interface for building tables using the online analysis system. The new tool improves the creation of tables through:
"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);
The ability to modify your 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 interface can be used for all SAMHDA studies that are available for online data analysis. To access the new feature, look for the "run simple crosstab/frequency" link in the Dataset(s) section of the study home page:
The Simple Crosstab/Frequency interface compliments the popular Quick Tables tool that SAMHDA continues to offer. For select studies, Quick Tables allow users to quickly and easily produce custom tables and graphs for preselected core variables with brief interpretations of results. Currently, Quick Tables are available for the following series: HBSC, NSDUH, TEDS-A, and TEDS-D.
If you have any questions about the new tool for creating tables, please contact the SAMHDA Help Desk.
