In my data set, I have four variables that have the same codes in them. The four variables relate to the same question that was given four different times to the same people. How do I get all of their responses under one variable so that I can work with it

Thanks. We'll let you know when a new response is added.

Hi,

Can you give us some more information please. What software/database/programming language are you using for this?

Regards,

Martin Gilbert.

My apologies…I am working with SPSS 17.0 and the GSS data set. I am trying to figure out how to merge the info from the variables mostimp1, mostimp2, mostimp3, and mostimp4 to use as one variable for my analysis.

Hi,

Afraid I can’t help you with that – I suggest you post the question again with SPSS and GSS in the “tags” so other people can see what the question is about.

Good luck,

Martin Gilbert.
