An analysis is not a report., It's the data you can use for a report. You can add as many analyses as you want to a report but it might not be efficient to have multiple analyses. Creating an analysis is the first step to creating a report once you have determined your goal and plan for what it is you are creating.
To create a custom analysis, follow these steps:
- Go to Reports > Report Center.
- Click Create Analysis.
- Choose your data set from the Select Data dropdown menu. Selecting one data set will populate the data points available within that set, and any additional related sets that can be selected.
- Click OK to generate a table.
From this point, there are numerous additional directions your analysis can go. Sometimes, an analysis is as simple as a table (if this accomplishes your goal). You can also add Formulas, Charts, and Crosstabs.
