With pivot table data of a dependent variable can be grouped by other variable(s) values and the groups can be processed by different functions.

To create a pivot table, from the Analysis menu choose Pivot table, and choose the variable(s) you want to analyze:

  • Set the dependent variable.
  • Set one or more independent variables. Any grouping variables can be used to group the dependent data by pages, rows and columns.
  • Set the function to apply for the grouped dependent variable.

Generally, spreadsheet programs can handle pivot tables more flexibly, and it may be a good idea to use them for pivots, although some functions are not available in them, when CogStat may be a better choice.
