Subject: automating value labels
If someone has an answer to this, it will make my life a lot less tedious. I undertake a lot of surveys in the course of my work and many of them tend to use rating scales with anchors such as: strongly agree, agree, undecided, disagree, strongly disagree.
I use SPSS version 8 to analyse the data and consequently I need to enter a lot of value labels. As many of the variables usually have identical value labels, I have the repetitive task of entering the same value labels for each variable.
Is there any way that I can automate this process? That is how can I instruct the program that the value labels for variable 1 are to be used for variable 2?
Any suggestions will be much appreciated.
