Subject: 10 most frequent occurring values of a multiple response set
Content-Type: text/plain; charset="iso-8859-1"
I have a data file with variables :
X , y1 , y2 , z1, z2 and z3
I wont to a accomplish the following task :
1. create a multiple response set z from z1,z2 and z3 .
2. Rank z and select cases for rank z <= 10
3. select cases from my original data file where z = z1, z2 or z3
My objective is to create a new dataset restricted to 10 most frequent occurring values of a multiple response set created from z1 , z2 and z3
Any ideas on how to accomplish this will be most welcome.
