Reading your Results Report - Disaggregate

Interpreting the results of the Disaggregate function

The results report for your disaggregation analysis contains several pieces of information that are important to properly interpret your results.


Example disaggregation results report.

The results report is structured so that the very first row tells you what the analysis is - Grade total (dependent variable) disaggregated by Grade level (categorical variable),

The remainder of the results report is a table - the first column (column A) in the table contains the levels of your categorical variable. In the example, the variable "Grade level" contained four levels - grade 9, grade 10, grade 11, and grade 12.

The second column contains the name of your selected dependent variable(s) (Grade total in the example above) and the third column is the valid N, which is the number of valid values (or non-missing values) that were included in the analysis.

If you are double disaggregating your data, you will have two columns of categorical variables.

The remaining columns contain the descriptive statistics you selected for the disaggregation analysis. Definitions can be found HERE.
