Sometimes with a Binary Multi question (i.e., a multiple response question) it is useful to count up the number of choices or selections (i.e., selections, or mentions) made for each case or respondent (e.g., the proportion to select only one option, two options, three options, etc.)
For example, if respondents are asked which of the following list of colas they are aware of, it may be on interest to count the number of colas each respondent selected.
Which of the following colas are you aware of?
- On the Data Set Tree, select all of the applicable variables.
- From the Insert Variable(s) menu select Ready Made New Variables > Count.
- Change the Structure to Nominal: Mutually exclusive categories.
- Create a table from the new variable(s).
