Likert scale input

#1
Hi,

I am a newbie to SPSS and am doing a research project this year. I am having trouble entering questions with multiple statements in one question. An example of this is below:

How readable (clear) is the information contained in the following sections of the audit report?


1)Report on financial statements
2)Director's responsibility
3)Auditor's responsibility
4)Opinion
5)Report on other legal and
regulatory requirements

The responses are on a 5 point likert scale from Very unclear to Very clear.

I am not sure how you would code this into SPSS and was wondering if someone could help me?

Thanks

You need to enter the response to the five separate questions into five separate variables. If you then want to assess overall readability, then you can sum the five separate variables into yet another variable. However, it may add to the usefullness of your reporting to also show them separately.
