Step 1

Suppose you conduct a survey and can classify your respondents according to two different sets of criteria, For example:
Criterion 1:
$$>$$ Age 18-25
$$>$$ Age 26-40
$$>$$ Age 41+
Criterion 2: $$>$$ Likes cats
$$>$$ Likes dogs
$$>$$ Likes neither
Then you can use each criterion as an axis for the table:
Table 1: Preferences regarding pets $$18-25 26-40 41+$$
Step 2
$$\begin{array}{|c|c|}\hline \text{Likes cats} & 15 & 12 & 31 \\ \hline \text{Likes dogs} & 18 & 12 & 25 \\ \hline \text{Likes neither} & 3 & 5 & 4 \\ \hline \end{array}$$
