Descriptive Statistics (with group variable)

The procedure produces summary statistics separately for each sub-group defined by the group variable. Group or explanatory variable is categorical variable and could be used to categorize observations on a common property. This procedure is equivalent to running Data → Unstack Column command before the Descriptive Statistics command.


Each row is an observation and
each column is a variable.

Values of the group variable (“Gender”) define
the groups for observations.
