Subject: Bar Chart question
Content-Type: text/plain; format=flowed
I've got three ordinal variables each with 5 categories.
I'd like to create a bar chart showing %'s in each category with stacked
bars adding up to 100%, with one bar for each variable, featuring all 3
variables on the single chart, (i.e. they'll be three 'stacked to 100%'
bars, 1 for each variable), enabling the visual conmparison of %'s in each
This is very easy in Excel but I've got loads to do and cutting-pasting lots
of frequency table output across really doesn't appeal. I just can't figure
out how to do this in SPSS - the nearest thing is in Igraph where you can
produce stacked bars adding to 100% for a single variables by categories of
another variable, but not for separate variables.
Has anyone got any ideas or a macro to do it? Or am I missing something
obvious - it seems very strange that SPSS can't produce a simple style of
chart that it easy to produce in Excel or Word!
