Greetings All

I am looking at some code that was given to me for help in learning SPSS. I see within it a few lines of syntax that transforms gender values from 1= female and 2 = male to -1 = female and 1 = male.

Any specific reasons why someone might do this? Does it help in running regressions?

Anthony
