Statistics – Count specific values among many variables
A rather new and not familiar command is the one that can Count in several columns for each individual.
In my example I will Count how many code 1 is found in the 5 attitude variables (att1-att5) – per individ.
The command is found in the “Transform”-menu :
Then fill in following:
And then click on “Define Values”-button.
Here you should define the value you want to count, I choose code “1”.
If you want to add more values to count on at the same time, just type in and add:
When ready: click “Continue” and finally “OK”.
A new variable will be created with the result, the number of value 1 for each person:
If you chosed to Count on 2 values, for example 1 and 2 then the extra variable should be like this:
