Subject: nested file
Content-Type: text/plain; charset="iso-8859-2"
I wonder if someone uses Nested File in SPSS. In nearest future I will have huge project. Data will concern individuals as well as region. The regional data will be common for group of individuals. The problem will be to not multiply the same information and to have all information. In such situation I just add common data (e.g. regional data) to every individual. Someone told me that Nested File in SPSS could solve this problem. I find some laconic information in Reference Guide, but it really not enough to become familiar with that subject. And there was no information how you can do calculations on hierarchical file (since simple frequentations, crostabulations .. on general and regional level). Any experience, suggestions, information will be highly appreciated.
