# TABULATE

Tabulation is the process of forming simple tables from the data. Such
tables are useful for looking at the structure of the data and numbers of
observations associated with factor combinations.
Multiple
tabulate
statements are permitted either
immediately before or after the linear model.
If a linear (mixed) model
is not supplied, ASReml will generate a simple model
as it does not
actually read the data
until it has read a linear model line.
The tabulate statement has the form

tabulate
response_variables
[
!WT
weight
!COUNT !DECIMALS
[
d
]
!SD !RANGE !STATS !FILTER
filter
!SELECT
value
] ~
factors
tabulate
is the directive name and must begin in column 1,
response_variables
is a list of variates for which means are required,
!WT
weight
nominates a variable containing weights,
!COUNT
requests counts as well as means to be reported,
!DECIMALS
[
d
] (1<=
d
<= 7) requests means be reported with
d
decimal places. If omitted, ASReml reports 5 significant digits;
if specified without an argument, 2 decimal places are reported,
!RANGE
requests the minimum and maximum of each cell be reported,
!SD
requests the standard deviation within each cell be reported,
!STATS
is shorthand for
!COUNT !SD !RANGE
,
!FILTER
filter
nominates a factor for selecting a portion of the data,
!SELECT
value
indicates that only records with
value
in the
filter
column are to be included,
~
factors
identifies the factors to be used
for classifying the data. Only factors (not covariates) may be
nominated and no more than six may be nominated.
ASReml prints the multiway table of means omitting empty cells to a file
with extension
.tab
.
