Art, The syntax you sent me for selecting listwise for frequencies:
select if nmissing( var31 to var50) eq 0.
frequencies vars= gender dept school . . .
wound up selecting 0 cases (after I modified to include the variables in my
dataset). Perhaps there is a variation to this.
I am confused as to why this is not an option in SPSS. When I am reporting
the demographics of a sample it is helpful to have the correct statistics on
the sample I ran the analysis on (those who would be included 'listwise')
How am I to report % gender and such without being able to filter out
missing data as I can using the "descriptives" function.
