Subject: using qualitative data
Content-Type: text/plain; format=flowed; charset="iso-8859-9";
A few years ago I collected some data on project teams using surveys. One
scale in my survey required participants to indicate which attributes of
their members stood out as the team worked on its tasks. Respondents were
asked to mark all attributes that are relevant. When entering this data I
entered, 1 if a certain attribute was marked and 0 if it is not marked.
What I want to do is that I want to aggregate individual level reponses to
find group-level perceptions of attributes that stood out in a team. I also
want to use this group level value as an independent variable in a seemingly
unrelated regression analysis. The problem is I don't know how to aggregate
this kind of data.
Any help is appreciated. Thank you in advance.
