I've a problem to solve about COMPUTE into a new variabe, and I'm not able
to solve it by myself.
I have 2 variables:
- CATEGORY is nominal (1 to 9), it represents the category or type of
respondent. So, it creates 9 groups in my sample.
- SECONDS is continuos (>0), represents the time spent to solve a test.
I want to create a dummy variable:
- SPEED: it should take 0 for slow respondents and 1 for fast respondents.
Slow respondents are defined as, for each CATEGORY, the first half of
the respective group (that is, the 50% slower respondents for that group).
Fast respondents are the others.
What would be the syntax command?
Any help is very much appreciated!
