Standardize columns of data that have differences in center or scale. You can standardize columns of data to combine and analyze them together, or to simplify comparisons among them. The standardized data are placed in new columns in the worksheet.
For example, a researcher wants to model pulse rates using heights and weights. The researcher standardizes the predictors Height and Weight.
|Height||Weight||Pulse||Standardize Height||Standardize Weight|
In regression, standardizing the predictors using the Subtract the mean option can reduce multicollinearity in models that contain polynomial terms and interaction terms.
