- Minitab Express: Two-Way Table

MinitabExpress  – Two-Way Table

This example will use data collected from a sample of students enrolled in online sections of STAT 200 during the Summer 2020 semester. These data can be downloaded as a Minitab Express Project or as a CSV file:



To create a two-way table of the Work Status and Primary Campus variables in Minitab Express:

  1. Open the data set in Minitab Express
  2. On a PC: Select STATISTICS > Cross Tabulation and Chi-square
    On a Mac: Select Statistics > Tables > Cross Tabulation and Chi-Square
  3. We have a data file where each row represents one case, so we will keep the default data entry method of Raw data (categorical variables) in the drop down menu
  4. Double click the variable Work Status in the box on the left to insert it into the Rows box on the right
  5. Double click the variable Primary Campus in the box on the left to insert it into the Columns box on the right
  6. Click OK

This should result in the two-way table below:

Tabulated Statistics: Work Status, Primary Campus
Rows: Work Status | Columns: Primary Campus
