3 simple steps to create cross-tabs in SPSS ?

###Step 1 - Get the SPSS file and understand which variables you will be using for your crosstabs.

I had the following source file and wanted to find out differences between shopping behaviour of Males and Females for a specific event.

My independent variables are therefore - Gender ( Male, Female) and my dependent varable is the question - ‘Do you shop on Black Friday?’

###Step 2 - Add the variables on SPSS under Analyze > Descriptives > Crosstabs
