Hello all..

im a newbie to SPSS..i took a course in statistics a few months ago and currently doing a project that I'm using SPSS analysis in..

The problem im facing is that I have 2 sets of questions in my questionnaire, all are likert scale type questions from 1 (not important) to 5 (very important)...

the problem is that in SPSS i have entered each question of the two sets as a variable, and I want to do the following:

1) descriptive analysis of the two groups (as groups) not as individual questions, i.e. i have responses for all questions, but i need to know how i can group the first 34 variables as the first set of questions (measuring one single variable), and the next 11 questions as the second set of questions measuring the second variable). How do i do that in SPSS?

2) I am thinking of doing correlation between the two variables after having grouped them properly using Pearson correlation. How do I do that in SPSS?

I appreciate any help since I'm totally lost and, as I said, am new to SPSS.

Thanks..
