Entering data from multiple surveys

Postby SAM27 » Sat Aug 10, 2013 11:07 pm


I am looking for the most efficient way to input data from 2 different surveys into 1 database. I have already entered 470 of survey #1 into a database. I now have 1,000 of survey #2 to add to the same database for a comparison study.
Only about half of the q's are the same for both surveys. The other half are different. Help!

Depending on SPSS version (see the Note below) there are various ways. Are you running any comparison tests or just a 'data compare?'
See the note below

NOTE: Please read the Posting Guidelines and always tell us your OS, the SPSS version and information about your study and data!
