DO IF ( MR_SEX = 1 and A3 ge 5). compute Audit_Score = 1. ELSE IF(MR_SEX = 2 and A3 ge 4). compute Audit_Score = 1. ELSE. compute Audit_Score = 0. END IF. EXECUTE. ------------------------------------------------------------------------------ From: J McClure To: SPSSX-L@LISTSERV.UGA.EDU Sent: Tue, August 3, 2010 3:32:26 PM Subject: calculating new variable by gender I want to calculate a new variable AUDITC_Score. It will be dichotomous with 0 (no) and 1 (yes). The threshold for AUDITC_Score 'yes' for women is ≥ 4 and for men ≥ 5. The threshold is calculated as the sum of the points for three separate variables: AUDIT_Freq, AUDIT_Daily, and AUDIT_GT5. Gender is MR_sex with 1=male and 2=female. I can calculate the score (using the drop down menu :-( ) but can't figure out how to make it different for men and women. I'm working on using syntax instead of the drop down so a syntax answer would be great. I'll use it as a template for other derived variables. (I am using PASW 18.)
