Subject: computing new variable based on percentiles
Good afternoon. I hope my question makes sense. I was told that there is a function in SPSS that will compute a new variable based on designated percentiles (e.g., 25th, 75th). For example, I have a variable called "test score" and I want to collapse/recode it into a variable that reflects low, medium, and high (based on percentiles). I have searched but have not come across any SPSS function that will compute a new variable. Any thoughts? Thanks
