# Tree Table

The tree table, as the name suggests, provides most of the essential tree diagram information in the form of a table. For each node, the table displays:

- The number and percentage of cases in each category of the dependent variable.
- The predicted category for the dependent
variable. In this example, the predicted category is the
*credit rating*category with more than 50% of cases in that node, since there are only two possible credit ratings. - The parent node for each node in the tree. Note that node 1—the low income level node—is not the parent node of any node. Since it is a terminal node, it has no child nodes.
- The independent variable used to split the node.
- The chi-square value (since the tree was
generated with the CHAID method), degrees of freedom (
*df*), and significance level (*Sig.*) for the split. For most practical purposes, you will probably be interested only in the significance level, which is less than 0.0001 for all splits in this model. - The value(s) of the independent variable for that node.

*Note*: For ordinal
and scale independent variables, you may see ranges in the tree and
tree table expressed in the general form *(value1,
value2]*, which basically means "greater than value1 and
less than or equal to value2." In this example,
income level has only three possible values—*Low*, *Medium*, and *High*—and *(Low, Medium]* simply means *Medium*. In a similar fashion, *>Medium* means *High*.
