About making one variable

Postby sushma » Sat Jan 28, 2017 3:48 pm

Hello,

I have four questions and I want to make it one variable. The one variable I wanted to make is work family conflict. The coding I have 1= several times a week, 2= several times a month, 3= once or twice in three month, 4= Never happened. How can I do it? Should I add all the questions ? If I do so, I will get number ranging from something like 8 to 16, does it give any sense. I am confused whether I can add this way. If I can, how can I recode it and give a meaning to it. Is it possible to recode low, moderate and high conflict? How can I do it ?
