  • You work with IBM SPSS Statistics 20 and created a custom table.
    For the row variable you create a new category with 'Add
    category' option and activate 'Hide categories used in
    expression from table'. For the column variable you select to
    have a total column displayed on the table. Additionally for the
    row variable you select for category position: 'Row labels in

      /TABLE educ [C][COUNT F40.0] BY minority [C]
      /CLABELS ROWLABELS=OPPOSITE
      /CATEGORIES VARIABLES=educ [8, 12, &cat1, 14, 15, 16, 17, 18,
