    Unhappy Please help with a bit of analysis!!!

    I was asked to analyse these 2 questions that are part of a questionnaire. This questionnaire is done on 3 different groups of people (A, B, C)

    I was thinking maybe plot it on axes and have one set of axes for each of the different groups. Is this the right approach??

    Also, what do I call this in my report?? Is there an official term or was it first created by someone that I can reference??

    Any help would be greatly appreciated

    Thanks!

    Construct a parallel axis plot! Look it up. I have included my own example from an old problem set years ago. I believe I used Data Desk. If you wish to know more, let me know. Data Desk is fairly simple to use, however, (unless your school has it on its public server) you would have to make do with the trial version. This is problematic because the trial does not allow copying, pasting, saving,etc. However, if you can get over that, it is nearly fully functional. You would just have to maximize the window and take a screen shot of your visual.

    You could do the same in programs such as JMP and SPSS. Both of these allow (I believe) fully functional 30-day free trials.

    Your best bet, however, is to search for an easier way to construct a parallel axis plot online. It is alternatively (and I believe more commonly) called a "parallel coordinate plot." I am positive there is a way around this without having to download huge programs. I would go this route first.

    Note that in my example, the three different colors represent 3 different "types" of colleges. I believe they were Liberal Arts, Public, and Private colleges.
