Data Parameters

Top  Previous  Next

Data parameters define a list of values that, together, form a data set. You must list out every value. Data parameters contain data that are normally accessed as one. For example, you might find the mean of a data set.


Data parameters are defined using the data command.










You can algorithmically create sets of data for statistical questions using the random number parameters. For example, the RandNormal parameter can create a random set of data that is normally distributed around a given mean and standard deviation.


You can also create data parameters which contain frequency tables, grouped data and bivariate data using special formats. These are discussed in the next section.
