Creating Summary Charts
Using the Chart Platform
The Chart platform on the Graph menu charts continuous variables versus categorical variables. The continuous variables are summarized for each categorical level. Chart supports several chart types, such as bar charts, pie charts, and line charts. Chart is similar to the Tables > Summary command and is useful for making graphical representations of summary statistics.
If you want to make a plot of individual data points (rather than summaries of data points), we recommend using the Overlay Plot platform. See the Creating Overlay Plots
for details about overlay plots.
