2. Double click Sheet 2 and rename (Profile of Respondents)
3. Make two columns for the Variables and Frequency
4. Type a number in the first columns starting from one (1,2,3,4…) that
represent the first up to the last variable
5. Type the formula in the second (2nd) column to get the frequency; to wit:
a) Type equals (=)
b) Type the word FREQUENCY followed by an open parenthesis [ ( ]
c) Highlight all the scores from the mother data (e.g. The scores of the
Sex columns) followed by a comma [ , ]
d) Highlight the number of the first column of the sheet (profile of
respondents) that represent the variables (score codes) followed by
a close parenthesis [ )]
<<<< The Manual of Operations for Data Analysis 5 >>>
8.
Example =FREQUENCY(Data!B4:B53,'Profile of Respondents'!B5:B6)

b. Type the word SUM followed by an open parenthesis [( ]
c. Highlight the score from top to bottom followed by a close parenthesis
[ )]
Example =SUM(D5:D6)
d. Press Enter when done and the total will automatically appear. You
can also highlight all the score in Frequency column until the total row
then click autosum symbol Σ.
Note:
• Continue the process in getting the frequency the rest of the profile of the
respondents until the frequency table will be completed.
• Every time you copy a data from the mother data choose Paste Specials
to avoid errors in analyzing the data.
B. Getting the Percentage of the Profile of Respondents
1. Add one column at the right side of the Frequency.
