**Graphs and Charts**

SPSS has many graphing tools. These are located in
the “Graphs” menu on the top of every window.

There are two types of graphs:

(1) The **Legacy Dialogs** graphs can be
obtained by clicking on “Graphs” menu, selecting “Legacy Dialogs” and
selecting the type of desired graph. Examples of charts include bar, line,
pie, box plot, and histogram. These graphs are edited by double clicking on
the graph and this opens the Chart Editor Window. Alternatively, right click
on the chart and select “Edit Content” and then select “In separate window”.
This also opens the Chart Editor Window.

(2) The **
Interactive graphs** can be obtained by clicking on “Graphs” menu and
selecting “Legacy Dialogs” and then “Interactive”. The type of desired
graphs (e.g. bar, dot, pie, box plot and histogram) can be selected.
Interactive graphs are edited by double-clicking on the graph and this opens
the Chart Editor Window. Note that you can also right-click on the chart and
select “Edit Content” and then select “In separate window”.

Both
Legacy Dialogs graphs and Interactive graphs are similar in appearance.
Graphs (like bar chart, dot diagram, and pie chart) can also be created for
a variable in pivot table. To do this, double-click on the pivot table to
edit the table in output viewer. Right click on the variable name and select
the desired graph. This is illustrated by the math Assessment data set.

Graphs and
charts are stored in the **
Output Window**.
In the left pane of the output window (the index pane), a graph is indicated
by the symbol . The right pane (the result content pane)
gives the corresponding graph.

Please select a type of graph in order to go to the page
describing that graph.**

Other graphs are created
similarly as the Legacy Dialogs Pie chart or Interactive Pie chart.
