Subject: SPSS Probabilities or Correlation of Yes-No
I am needing some help in which direction to go with a dataset (n=58) of
17 variables with possible responses yes(1), no(0), and missing(666).
The dataset is a screening form of the life history of individuals
incarcerated locally. I'd like to know the probabilities/correlation
(%) of a response yes to a question correlating a yes response on
another question. Is it a simple bivariate correlation command? The
one I ran came up with several significant correlations from the Pearson
Correlation Coefficients, but then how do I determine correlation of a
yes instead of no? I may be over thinking this or missing something.
