# Frequency Plots Form

Frequency Plots are a tool, developed by Michael Petrovich, to display tables of frequencies, relative frequencies, or cumulative frequencies of groups in a data set. Selecting Frequency Plot will bring up the following form. Click items on this picture to see their function.

### Menu

Menu to select options to Print, Copy, and obtain Help.

### Speed Buttons

The buttons provide quick access to common tasks. Clicking these buttons do the following tasks:

- Returns to the
__Main Form__. - Prints the Frequency Plot.
- Copies the Frequency Plot to the clipboard.
- Brings up the
__Main Form__. - Brings up the Help file.
- Hides the form.

### Variable Names/Levels

The variable names or levels are displayed here.

### Interval Midpoints

The Midpoints of each interval for the row are displayed here.

### Frequency Plot Grid

The Plot of Frequencies, Relative Frequencies, or Cumulative Frequencies are displayed here. These are plotted by midpoints by variable/level.

To move from Cell to Cell within the plot, see

__Moving from Cell To Cell__.### Frequency Plot Interval Size Selection

An optional

__Interval Size__may be entered into this box. Entering a value of*zero*generates a Frequency Plot using the__default interval size__.### Frequency Plot Type

Three types of Frequency Plots may be selected:

*Frequencies*: The number of observations falling into each cell are displayed.

*Relative Frequencies*: The proportion of observations falling into each cell are displayed.

*Cumulative Frequencies*: The cumulative proportion of observations falling into each cell are displayed.

### First Interval

The first interval used may be set here. If greater than the smallest value, a smaller value will be used that is a multiple of the interval size selected and which will generate an interval midpoint of the selected value.
