any advice would be much appreciated, I have two groups each of which are participating in a different sport. I will be comparing different things between the two groups such as where they recieve advice from regarding nutrition ect. I am totally lost.
At present I have every single variable in seperate for every group and question, for example for one sport, say football, I have age groups in football as a variable and then I assigned values under this heading for each age cat. such as 18-25 yrs old and so on. I did the same for the second sport, say basketball which is listed as another seperate variable.
for the nutrition sources question I have each source as a seperate variable with the sport after it, this leaves me with ten seperate variable headings for each sport (ie football coach, books, internet ect all as seperate headings) then I did the same for basketball, say basketball coach ect, again all seperate headings for basketball.
Is this the right way to layout the data in SPSS? I am not sure if for example each heading questioning the source of information should be put in with values of say 1 football, 2 basketball and only have ten headings instead of twenty in total with just 1 for yes and 2 for no values.
Sorry if this is very poorly explained, I hope someone might have advice!
