Coding

Data coding allows replacing labels or levels of a variable with other labels. Recode data directly in Excel using the XLSTAT add-on statistical software.

Why do we recode data

All data cannot be directly used as input data into an analysis. For example, you may need to transform levels into numbers. Also when plotting a chart you may want to change the labels with a code that is shorter or more precise. Doing these tasks manually may be time consuming. This is why we have developed a coding tool that can do the work for you, saving you time and hassle.

Coding or recoding with XLSTAT

The XLSTAT coding tool allows coding or recoding a table into a new table, using a coding table that contains the initial values and the corresponding new codes.
