Enter your data for Lag

In the Lag dialog box, specify the column of data that you want to analyze.

  1. In Variable, enter a column of data to lag.
  2. In Lag, enter the number of rows to shift the data.
    For example, an analyst enters 2 to determine the moving range for the number of incoming technical support calls. Minitab shifts the original data by 2 rows and stores them in a new column.
