I am computing 2 scales, one for electoral and one for non-electoral political participation.
Each scale has 3 questions in it (for example "did you vote the last elections?")
The answer can ben 1.no and 2.yes.
So then I would think that the minimum frequency on a scale is 3 (3times no(1)) and the maximum is 6 (3 times yes(2)).
But when I run my frequencies, I get values "1" and 4.5 .... How and why? What did I do wrong?
I tried the "if" command in the compute box and did Nmiss(3 items in the scale) <0 but that didnt work either
