Dear all,

I keep on having this problem handling the multiple responses questions with SPSS / PASW

i've been checking for a solution for this problem for a long time, red so many posts regarding the same issue but couldn't find what i want.

i would really appreciate any help regarding this.

here is the issue i'm facing in details.

in several questions among the same questionnaire were the multiple responses are possible.

for example

i'm having a question with 10 answer selection

the row data for that question - for example - if i select answers 3,4 & 7.. will be as follows


now exporting this data to SPSS will create 10 variables, 1 var for each statement with values 1=mentioned & 0=not mentioned

what can i do to get the results in SPSS / PASW in one variable with the percentages / frequencies for each statement distributed ?

same process i can do using a data processing software (NIPO - DIANA)

what are the steps in SPSS / PASW that i should follow to get the results for the question were each statement shows it's own freq. / percentage instead of getting each statement in a separate variable ?

thanks and best regards,
