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