Subject: handling multiple responses with SPSS 17 & PASW 18
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.
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,
