How do I categorize a numeric variable in my charts?

If the response has been captured as a numeric variable (figure), you may only show averages.

However, in some cases, e.g. if you want to use a numeric variable in a series break (Year of birth ==> age categories), you will need to follow these steps:

  1. Select the numeric question you want to categorize. Right click. The “Options when opens”
  2. Select “Edit question“. The question editor appears
    1. Right click in the “Response columns” area and select “Create header (Categorize)
    2. Specify the numeric (age) span you want, and give it your own description
    3. Research Analyzer will automatically suggest that next span is the same . You may of course override this
    4. Repeat until you have created enough categories for your purpose. The select close. The created categories may very well overlap each other.
    5. Create a new question text that better describes the created categories.
    6. You may now use this categorized question in both columns and rows
