Designing & Running Analyses

A procedure in StatPac refers to a set of keywords that perform one or more tasks. A procedure may specify a single analysis or several analyses of the same type. Procedures can also contain commands to perform transformations and write subfiles.

The commands to perform an analysis (or series of analyses), can be stored in a file called a procedure file. This means that you can easily recall a previously created procedure file, and make changes to it without having to retype the commands. The procedure file is stored on disk with a .pro extension. Procedure files can be saved, loaded and merged with other procedure files.

To begin running analyses, click the Analysis button. The analysis screen has two parts. The left side of the screen shows the commands to run the procedures, and the right side of the screen shows the list of variables.
