Subject: Re: How can a have a graph show categories with 0 frequency?
You can do this easily in chart builder. Just make sure your ordinal
variable is defined as Ordinal (i.e. on the Variable View tab of the Data
Editor, set the Measure for that variable to Ordinal). Then make sure you
have entered value labels for every value of the ordinal variable you want
to display in your chart.
That's it. You can then produce a histogram or a bar chart which will show
all values of the ordinal variable even ones with zero frequency.

Subject: How can a have a graph show categories with 0 frequency?
I have a very simple but urgent question and I would appreciate so much an
answer. I have a simple bar graph for an ordinal variable (1=not at all ....
6= very much) and one of the categories (1=not at all) has 0 frequency (no
subject has chosen that one.). How can I have that category represented in
the graph, even though its frquency is 0?
Thank you very much!
