Subject: How to create scenarios using SPSS 9.0 PC
Content-Type: text/plain; charset=us-ascii
I am a graduate student using SPSS PC 9.0 to study ethnic differentials
in a health outcome. I am interested in creating what I call scenarios
to test for differences between the ethnic group in both the magnitude
of the effects of variables along with differences that are due to group
composition. I am using OLS regressions.
I want to set up these scenarios:
a) assign blacks the mean values for whites on education, everything
else remains the same and run the regression.
b) assign blacks the coefficients for whites, everything else remains
the same, and run the regression.
c) Additional variation on this theme.
I have tried using COMPUTE, DO IF, statements with no luck. Can anyone
help, please? I am sure it is something simple I am overlooking.
