Subject: Computing overlaps in a list of variables
I am working with SPSS v14 and I have a very basic understanding of SPSS
syntax. I have seven variables v1.....v7 each with two valid responses
(1=YES and 2=NO)as well as seven user-defined missing values for each of
the seven variables.
I want to work out the numbers/percentages of all possible two-way, three-
way, four-way, five-way... etc combinations in my data set of 15,000 cases
for which the response in each of the seven variables (v1...v7)is YES. Is
there an efficient way of doing this?
