Data in MINITAB
MINITAB is a powerful, yet user-friendly, data analysis software package. You can
launch MINITAB by finding the icon and double clicking on it. After a moment you
will see two windows, the Session Window in the top half of the screen and the
Worksheet or Data Window in the bottom half.
Data have already been formatted and entered into a MINITAB worksheet. Go to the
eCollege Doc sharing site to download this data file. The names of each variable from
the survey are in the first row of the Worksheet. This row has a background color of
gray to identify it as the variable names. All other rows of the MINITAB Worksheet
represent a certain students’ answers to the survey questions. Therefore, the rows are
called observations and the columns are called variables. Included with this lab, you
will find a code sheet that identifies the correspondence between the variable names
and the survey questions.
