Thanks Jon

I was using traditional MULT RESP and should have sent the syntax as well.

mult resp groups stim 'Q23: Substances taken to cope' (q23.1 to q23.3 (1))

hazards 'Q24: Hazards experienced in workplace' (q24.1 to q24.16 (1))

social 'Q28: Not at all satisfied with time for family and social life' (q28.1 to q28.11 (1))

/freq stim to social.

How would I do this with CTABLES?

If you are using CTABLES, this is easy to do. Here's an example.

CTABLES /TABLE $prob BY childs /CATEGORIES VARIABLES=$prob ORDER=D KEY=COUNT

The MR set works just like ordinary variables. You can see this choice in the Categories and Totals subdialog of the gui.

If you are using the old Multiple Response procedure, you would have to run the table and then reorder the categories in the set definition appropriately and run the table again.

I’m advising a group of students doing a survey of shift-workers. Is there a way to rearrange the variables in a mult resp table (dichotomous mode: see table below) by size of frequencies, or do they have to do it by hand? RTFM doesn’t help as there doesn’t appear to be anything. John F Hall <mailto:johnfhall@orange.fr> johnfhall@orange.fr <http://surveyresearch.weebly.com/> www.surveyresearch.weebly.com
