Freq and Weight: better documentation

☐ cool new feature
☑ could help many users!

☐ removes a „bug“

☑ nice to have

☐ nobody needs it


What inspired this wish list request? 

Freq and Weight can have different effects.


Jmp documentation makes it difficult to understand the differences: 



SAS provides an application note 

and an explanatory article about the differences:


Jmp uses Freq differently from SAS: 


If the user wants to weight different values differently in a Median calculation (weights: 0-1), he has to use Freq: 

...  and he is allowed to use Freq (in Jmp)


What is the improvement you would like to see? 

Please add some explanatory text to the documentation - perhaps: some simple example

which explains the difference between Weight and Freq and guides the user to pick the right one.


Why is this idea important? 

To generate meaningful analysis a user has to understands the meaning of entries in the GUI.
Best: via documentation - not via trial and error
