yes / no ; 1/2 ; red/blue are all catergorical variables; so in spss code them as string variables:
This article might help.
i know it may sound stupid to some of you but i have a question i really need an answer to :
In the SPSS i defined an IV as yes/no and marked it(just cause i thought i would have problems with words) Yes = 1 and NO =2. What type of variable that 1/2 variable would be ? i mean i have no idea what all these kinds of variables in this software are (numeric,comma,dot, string etc. etc....) ....
I guess it's bit ignorance but i really need an answer to this simple question.
Thanks a lot everybody for this unique place : )
