You might have additional or supplementary data in the same form as the main data set that you are evaluating. These supplementary data could be further information from the same study, information from other studies, or target profiles. You can use the supplementary data to validate the components, often with a historical value or known standard. You can also explore the scores of auxiliary data, such as outliers that you remove from the analysis. Supplementary data appear in the output but do not affect the components.
- Supplementary data (in same form as input data)
- Enter one or more columns in the same format as the columns of data that you entered for the analysis. For example, if you entered indicator variables on the main dialog box, you must enter the supplementary data in the form of indicator variables.
- Category names
- Enter a column that contains text names for each category for all the supplementary data. Minitab matches the order of the names with the order of the columns that you entered for Supplementary data (in same form as input data).
