I am doing a research for my dissertation. I developed a survey where each question has 3 items and the answers are a 5 lickert scale, the format of the question is a checkbox matrix. Now i exported in spss and I have for each item 5 variables corresponding to the 5 answers (strong disagree-strong agree). How can I determine the descriptive statistics for the whole question so that i can do correlation with an other question??

I am desperate
