Hi Stephen,
There may be a problem with your code. If you have any missing data,
you've just relegated it to ethnic4 (the drop out category). When you run
through your COMPUTEs for ethnic 1 to 3, teh missing data along with all you
other cases got a value of 0. Then in the If statement the valid data for
that ethnicity got a value of 1 on that pass, but you never correct the
missing data. You might want to try this after the COMPUTE statements:
IF MISSING(ethnic) ethnic1 = $SYSMIS.
IF MISSING(ethnic) ethnic2 = $SYSMIS.
IF MISSING(ethnic) ethnic3 = $SYSMIS.
IF MISSING(ethnic) ethnic4 = $SYSMIS.
Good luck.
