Fifth or last Column: Should contain the mean of those persons with >30 mean scores. Then ViAnn wrote: What do you mean by the number of persons with >30 mean scores? And why do you want it twice? Reply: There are 4000 persons, right? The mean scores range from 0 to 100%, right? Now, how many of the 4000 have mean scores of greater than 30 percent (>30%)? Hope this is clear. Johnny Johnny T.
