*Header*

The first row of your data, containing the variable names. Make sure to include it when pasting your raw data into table1.cc !

*Table 1*

Conventionally, the first table in a epidemiology paper or clinical trial that summarizes characteristics of the study population.

*Variable of Interest*

A characteristic you want to include because it is relevant to your baseline populations. Examples might include *income level*, *comorbidities*, *ethnicity*, or *educational level*.

*Variable Type*

The nature of a variable determines it's variable type. Variable types supported in table1.cc include:

*categorical*variables (such as gender)*continuous,*variables such as__normally distributed__*age*or*blood pressure**continuous variables that follow a*. These frequently include measures related to__non-normal__distribution*survival*or*reaction times*(Bono*et al.*, 2017)

*p-Value*

A common measure for statistical *significance* of differences between groups. The correct selection of test to determine the p-Value depends on the variable type. Table1.cc uses t-tests for normally distributed variables, and Kruskal-Wallis tests for non-normal (skewed) variables.
