1. CROSSTABS, the command producing contingency tables, as well as TABLES
and CTABLES which produce more sophisticated custom tables, have the option
of showing either absolute frequencies or percentages (or both) in the cells
of a table. Percentages may be computed relative to the row totals, to the
column totals, or the table's grand total. These frequencies or percentages
do not usually include cases with missing values, unless you take steps to
include them as well (which is also an option).
2. Read the manuals and some basic book about SPSS, and use intensively the
HELP system in its various aspects. Regarding books I would recommend Marija
Norusis' SPSS Guide to data analysis (get the latest version of the book, or
the one corresponding to your version of SPSS).

Subject: Frequencies into percentages
I was wondering if anybody knows how to display the percentage as well as
the numbers of a variable in a crosstabulation- i.e. 25 cases are classified
as "neutral" but what is the actual percentage?
ALSO- I'm pretty lost with SPSS- does anybody have a recommendation on how I
can really hone my data analysis skills?
