Labeling Observations

Setting a Default Label Variable

In addition to specifying label variables for individual plots, you can specify a label variable that will automatically be used in all future plots.

Click on the upper left corner of the variable SEX in the data window.

This displays a pop-up menu. Choose Label from the pop-up menu.

Now SEX is the default label variable, and future plots will use SEX for labels. In the data window, the word Label appears above the variable name, as shown in Figure 8.10.
