Create a bar chart of a function of a single Y variable: simple

Complete the following steps to create a bar chart that displays a function of a continuous variable, grouped by the values of a categorical variable. If your data are arranged differently, go to Choose a bar chart.

  1. Open the dialog box.
    • Mac: Choose Graphs > Bar Chart > Mean or other function of a continuous variable > Single Y variable: Simple.
    • PC: Choose GRAPHS > Bar Chart > Function of a variable > Single Y Variable: Simple.
  2. In Function, select the function of the continuous variable that you want to graph.
  3. In Continuous variable, enter the column of measurement data that you want to graph.
  4. In Categorical variable, enter the column of categorical data that defines the groups.

In the following worksheet, LightOutput is the continuous variable and contains light output measurements. Temperature is the categorical variable and indicates the temperature level for each light output measurement. The graph shows the mean light output for each temperature level.
