The Visual Dashboard contains a number of gadgets for analysis, charts, and advanced statistics.


General Analysis Gadgets

  • Line List – provides a view of data in tabular format.
  • Frequency – shows how many records have each value of a field.
  • Word Cloud – used for text fields; shows the most common words used in a font size proportional to the frequency the word is used.
  • Combined Frequency – illustrates the frequency and percentage of grouped variables.
  • M x N / 2 x 2 Table – allows you to examine the relationship between two or more categorical values.
  • Matched Pair Case-Control – compares an Exposure Variable, the Outcome Variable (i.e., case vs. control), and a Match variable that links each case to its control.
  • Means – calculates the average for a continuous numeric variable.
  • Duplicates List – helps you identify potentially duplicate records.
  • Charts – produces histograms, scatter plots, pie charts, and bar and line graphs directly from data files.
