multivariate analysis. When the centroids of these dummy variables are plotted along
with species scores in a CCA biplot, you have an ideal display of the relationships
between your classes, and the species that occur in them. Of course, any statistical
tests would be inappropriate.
Data set statistics
Summary statistics for both the raw and working data sets are displayed by clicking
on the Summary tab.
You can choose summary statistics for either the raw or working data sheets.
Statistics can be generated for Rows, columns and general summary statistics for the
data. These statistics are particularly useful prior to undertaking many analyses. For
example analyses should not be undertaken on a data set that comprises large
numbers of zeros. Use Summary statistics to determine the number of zero elements
in your data.
To obtain general statistics on the raw data select the Raw Data radio button in the
Use panel situated below the grid to select Raw Data.
Statistics for the individual rows and columns of either the raw or working data matrix
are selected using the Statistics radio buttons situated below the grid.
Values for each row or column are shown numbered in the order they appear in the
original data matrix. The statistics calculated are as follows:
Mean This is the mean of all the values in the data matrix.
Median This is the median of all the values in the data matrix.
Max This is the maximum value in the data matrix.
Min This is the minimum value in the data matrix.
Zeros This is the number of zero entries in the data matrix.
Non zeros This is the number of non zero entries in the data matrix.
% Zeros (Number of zeros/Total number of cells) * 100
Sum This is the sum of all the values in each row or column in the data matrix.
