Browsing data

Postby MeganD » Mon Sep 28, 2015 2:59 pm

I am trying to search through my data to find duplicate responses. I know which respondents respondent multiple times- i just need to identify them in my data set so I can visually inspect the data. In STATA this could easily be completed with the command "browse "variable name" if "variable name==____". It would then display only data that fit this criteria. Is there a comparable method to do this in SPSS? Another way to do this would be to alphabetize the responses for a the respondent variable and then visually inspect data that way. I would prefer to do this using syntax (so I can save it and replicate) but am also fine using the drop down options.

there is an "Identify duplicate cases" function that might be suitable for you.
you can also create something like that yourself using sort and then a lag function.
