Subject: Reverse scaling for continuous variables
Content-Type: text/plain; charset="iso-8859-1"
I'm new to this list and haven't figured out how to work the archives yet, so I apologize if this has been previously discussed.
I'm looking for assistance on how to reverse code continuous variables with many values. For example, median income levels from the Bureau of Census is one of the variables I need to reserve scale. I know how to reverse code categorical variables, but haven't figured out how to do variables with a large amount of variables.
Thanks for your help.
