Multiple variables input

Postby Koen92 » Fri Dec 11, 2015 5:07 pm

Hi and welcome!

I'm doing a research that involves data consisting of multiple variables.
Example:
Company X, in year Y1 Y2 Y3 Y4 Y5, is tested on Performance - Efficiency - Growth.

So basically I have multiple dimensions. How can I correctly put this data in SPSS.
To clarify: I'm going to test performance, efficiency and growth for multiple companies over multiple years.
Is this possible in SPSS? Because this is not a simple 2D matrix.

Thanks in advance!

with spss you cannot have multiple outcomes simultaneously, but you can do them separately.
If you want to compare for instance growth curves etc you have to go to other software.
For instance, mplus or R.

If you just want to examine whether multiple measures of X (year1, year2, year3) are different, you can use repeated measures anova.
