Subject: Calculating BDI score with SPSS20
Content-Type: text/plain; charset=us-ascii
I am a novice SPSS user and have (I believe) a fairly straightforward
question, but don't know the correct terminology, so have been unable to
find an answer online. I apologize in advance if this question is
I want to calculate scores for the Beck Depression Inventory (BDI) and
already know how to create a variable for the total score (I have numbered
responses of 0-3 for each question, and for most questions it is just a
matter of adding up the responses) . However, question 19 has two parts.
Part A is a normal 0-3 scale, but Part B has a yes or no response. If the
response is "yes", part A should not be included in the total score, but if
the response is "no" than Part A needs to be added.
What is the correct terminology for the calculation I need to do, and can
anyone explain to me how to do it?
Thanks a lot!
