Tool to identify combination

Postby Tri » Sat Mar 08, 2008 2:37 pm

Hi there,

I have one dataset which can be divided into 3 categories i.e. A, B,C.

In each category (say A), there are many features to express a certain nature of the data (i.e. A1, A2, A3). Similarly to set B & C.

In short, it can be described as followed:

A1 B1 C1
A2 B2 C2
- B3 C3

In theory the integration A1 and B1 result in C1 (i.e. A1 + B1 ==> C1); similar to A1 + B2 ==> C2; etc.

In the ideal case, one integration (of A and B) results in one and only one value of set C and another way around. However, in my case, one integration could result in more than one value of C (i.e. C1 and C2) and one value of C can be the result of more than one combination i.e. C1 can be the result of A1+B1 and A1+B2.

I wonder if I could use SPSS to decide which combination of A and B will result in only one value of C.

Any reply is very valuable.

Please send email to me at

could you please specify what integration exactly means, what the measurement level of your variables is, and so on...?
