Pareto Chart

Select menu: Stats | Six Sigma | Pareto Charts

This menu sorts tables so that their margins are in a specified order. With a multi-way table, for example, this may help in interpreting an interaction from an analysis of variance. With a one-way table, it allows the cells to be displayed in ascending order, as in a Pareto chart.

Note: The Table Sort menu does the same procedure, but displays the new table as a spreadsheet rather than a graph.
