Ordering Relate's output by normal dataset order instead of statistical strength

If you have more than two variables selected when you click Relate, Statwing will sort the results in order of which variables are most tightly related to the key variable. So if you had 15 variables selected, and your key variable was “Revenue”, the results towards the top would be the most important drivers of revenue (or at least variables that are closely related to it).

Sometimes you'd rather have the results sorted by dataset order instead of statistical order. To change how Statwing outputs Relate results for a dataset, click the name of the dataset in the top left, then "Analysis Settings"


Then choose to order results by "Original column order":


(Technical note: this is accomplished via comparing the effect sizes of any results that are statistically significant. Note also that effect sizes for different types of analyses aren’t directly comparable, so we use appropriately adjusted effect sizes behind the scenes.)
