Hi there to all SPSS users Considering myself not an expert user of SPSS and not very fond of statisti= cs in general, I need a little help. I have a bunch of behavioral data concerning daily routing of horses. I've = performed chi-square tests to find differences between the 2 major subgroup= s on my sample etc etc but I would like to go a little further. So I would = like to ask if there is a way to combine the data in a meaningful way in or= der to find a behavioral mean of all days and depict in a diagram in SPSS? = To be a little more specific I'm posting =CE=B1 graph btw. link to graph ( = https://postimg.org/image/3kmmsr7ex/ ) It is a stacked bar chart of the beh= avioral routine of one of the horses I was keeping data, showing 4 types of= behavior (Locomotor, Feeding, Resting and a group of other behaviors that = are less important and in low frequency grouped altogether) during a period= of 11 hours, taken every five minutes. The graph depicts frequency counts = and not percentages. What I'm asking is how I can find the mean of every be= havior, every hour of the day (if there's a meaningful way for me to do thi= s) via SPSS and depict it as graph in order to compare it against the other= horses' behavioral patterns. My row data are in an SPSS spread sheet of 3180 rows and 12 primary columns= so it's a little to much to post. I can transfer them in an excel sheet an= d post it if anyone wants to take a look. If you just want a to take a quic= k glimpse at the form of the data here's a link http://postimg.org/image/45= 730hojr/ I hope I became clear enough. Don't hesitate to ask me for anything you don= 't understand. Thank you in advance

So I would like to ask if there is a way to combine the data in a meaningful way in order to find a behavioral mean of all days and depict in a diagram in SPSS? Look at all the data for both groups. What makes sense of it? Is it the total amount of Locomotion/Feeding/Resting/other ? (LFRo) Is it the time of day of LFRo? Is it how often one horse switches? - Ask the horse trainers. > To be a little more specific I'm posting ? graph btw. link to graph ( https://postimg.org/image/3kmmsr7ex/ ) It is a stacked bar chart of the behavioral routine of one of the horses I was keeping data, showing 4 types of behavior (Locomotor, Feeding, Resting and a group of other behaviors that are less important and in low frequency grouped altogether) during a period of 11 hours, taken every five minutes.

What I'm asking is how I can find the mean of every behavior, every hour of the day (if there's a meaningful way for me to do this) via SPSS and depict it as You can use Aggregate to get the means by hour, or whatever. But you would do better, I think, in spending some hours on working on the conceptualization. >graph in order to compare it against the other horses' behavioral patterns. >My row data are in an SPSS spread sheet of 3180 rows and 12 primary columns so it's a little to much to post.
