multiple choice questions with multiple answers

Postby John12 » Tue May 08, 2012 9:07 am


I am analyzing a survey.
I have a question with 6 answers (yes or no). The respondent could give 2 answers.

I have the answers analyzed with SPSS. 2 responsecapabilities giving 2 variables; created for this question.

I coupled the 2 variables en the following data came out:

choice A: 5.8%
option B: 38.2%
option C: 22.2%
choice D: 31.9%
choice E: 1%
choice F: 1%

If I have 110 surveys and the number of choosen options is 207 (some have no idea / not applicable chosen so this is no 220) what is the accuracy of the result when I go out of a 95% confidence interval?
Normaly i shoud give an interval something like option A: 3.4%-6.8%
Can you analyze it using SPSS?
I can do a T-test on the two variables separately but not in the contracted variable.
May I instance the average of both intervals or take the largest number and smallest number of intervals take both?
I want to calculate it manualy but I would absolutely do not know how to start.
Does anyone have experience with the analysis of multiple choice questions with multiple answers?

Thank you.

Sorry I don't understand this at all. Coloured balls?
Please describe your data and question a bit more.
