Some questions for clarification:meekdav wrote:Greetings all,
I am new to SPSS and am trying to work with some multiple response data. I've learned the basics of "Defining Variable Sets" and running the "Frequencies", but I'm not getting what I'd like to in the output. What I have are data with 4 variables (columns), and individuals were able to select more than one response. What I would like is a frequency output where I can see the number that selected any of the four variables, as well as the number that selected more than one response, and what were those response combinations. It's this last part that seems to be missing in the multiple response frequency analysis. Is there a way to see what are the response combinations, and their frequencies?
Thanks in advance,
Thanks Gutnre, that makes sense; would those data then be "double counted" in a multiple response analysis, i.e. they'd become part of the % of respondents who responded to dairy, as well as those that responded to meat, and those that responded to dairy-meat combined? If so, is there a way to not have them included in those variables analysis, perhaps making that part of an "if" statement, i.e IF...then populate new column and "delete values" in original column (obviously not the right syntax).Gutnre wrote:using if-function, you can create a new variable that is made up of multiple answers from previous questions.
if (dairy = 1 & meat = 1 & agrigulture = 0 & fruit = 0) combined = 1.
if (dairy = 1 & meat = 1 & agrigulture = 1 & fruit = 0) combined = 2.
then you can label them.
value labels combined 1 "dairy meat" 2 "dairy meat agriculture" .
