data cleaning for multiple answers selected for single variable

Postby CKCKCK » Sun May 24, 2015 2:49 pm

Hello,
I have data which gives a list of descriptors each to be answered using a single % (0%,10%,20%,30%,40%,50%,60%,70%,80%,90%,100%). some participants answered with multiple percents for a single descriptor, I am trying to remove these participants. is there an effective way to remove these participants other than going through the responses by hand?

can you please indicate how your data are stored? I.e., are 10% 20% etc each separate variables that have a 1 in case this option is selected? Or something else? in order to answer your question we need to know what your data look like.
