Subject: Sort Cases (by two variables)
Content-Type: text/plain; charset="iso-8859-1"
I am a dutch student at the open university. My teacher could not help me with the next problem .
In World95.sav I tried to sort simultaneously fertility (Ascending) and lit_fema (Descending).
In Syntax Editor:
SORT CASES BY
fertility (A) lit_fema (D) .
Fertility is perfectly ascending, but in lit_fema I get orders like the following:
For cases 29 to 33 fertility is 1.9 .
Then I expect lit_fema (%females who read) to be descending. But I get the following:
case29 -> 100
case30 -> 84
case31 -> 100
case32 -> 93
case33 -> 98
Can anybody tell me what goes wrong?
