Definitions for Center from the web

  1. A CENTER or reference value is stored with each variable (variable attribute). When you create a new variable, by default the median will be computed and stored as reference values. A number of commands use a CENTER option (e.g. some coding options) to refer to this value. This allows easy comparisons with global values (e.g. global percentages etc). Several commands (DISP, PERCENT) modify this center value. Refrenence values are stored into system files (PUT) and restored by a GET command. There is also a label and descriptor attached to the CENTER, this label/descriptor is global to a whole WA, i.e. it is not always meaningful for all variables. The CENTER command is used to manage this attribute. Note that reference value and center are synonyms.
