Hi all SPSS users,
I have a sample of 92 investors, each of of whom have chosen to invest
in one of 16 regions in Poland; the region chosen is my dependent
I have ordinal independent variables, investors' judgements (i.e. the
reasons why they invested in that region) of the
importance of 14 factors (below showning only three as an example):
X1 = Labor
X2 = R&D
X3 = Transportation costs
Each of these is scored as
. 0=not sure
. 1=not important
. 2=some importance
. 3=fairly important
. 4=very important
. 5=extremely important
"I have been advised that a multinomial logit is the appropriate model
(thanks, Nils Braakmann), and that NOMREG in the Regression Models
module is probably the tool to use in SPSS.
"I need your help or advice on how to set up and run such a model in
SPSS, with anything you can say about likely problems, and how to
interpret the results.
