This rule works by generating a new table in the background, applying the selected weight to that table, and then copying the column of weighted numbers into the original table.
This rule can take you from a crosstab with spans...
...to a crosstab with a weight applied to a specific column span, e.g. the Under 35 span:
- A crosstab with spans.
- A weight variable.
1. Select your table.
2. Go to Properties > RULES on the object inspector.
3. To apply the rule, select the Plus (+) > Weighting > Apply Weight to Column Span.
4. Select Column span to weight.
5. Select your Weight variable.
6. Press OK.
Any significance testing results for the weighted columns are taken from the weighted table only, and no attempt is made to reconcile tests between the weighted and unweighted portions of the table. This means that the results in a column with the rule applied are highly unlikely to be comparable to any columns without the rule
