When inputting the data into SPSS I treated each item on the checklist as its own variable, and now I've grouped all of these individual variables into a multiple response set and produced a frequency count on that basis.Question: Which of the following emotions did you experience after leaving your last job?
The issue I have is with the percentages in the frequency count. At present, they represent the number of times each item appears as a percentage of the sum total of all of the responses given, but what I want it to tell me is the number of times each item appears as a percentage of the total number of respondents to the survey.
In other words, I want to be able to say: "??% of the respondents to my survey said that they felt 'happy' after leaving their last job, while ??% said that they felt relieved'. I also want to be able to represent each item visually in a bar chart, and the way it currently is, the bar chart wouldn't make sense.
