# Potato Chips and ANOVA in Analytical Chemistry – Part 1: Formatting Data in JMP

November 4, 2015 Leave a comment

I am very excited to write again for the official JMP blog as a guest blogger! Today, the **first article** of a 2-part series has been published, and it is called “Potato Chips and ANOVA in Analytical Chemistry – Part 1: Formatting Data in JMP“. This series of blog posts will talk about **analysis of variance (ANOVA)**, **sampling**, and analytical chemistry, and it uses the quantification of sodium in potato chips as an example to illustrate these concepts.

The first part of this series discusses how to import the data into the **JMP** and prepare them for ANOVA. Specifically, it illustrates how the “**Stack Columns**” function is used to transpose the data from wide format to long format.

I will present this at the Vancouver SAS User Group (VanSUG) meeting later today.

Stay tuned for “Part 2: Using Analysis of Variance to Improve Sample Preparation in Analytical Chemistry“!
