Question re Likert

#1
Hi there.

Hi have 3 likert scale style set of questions, type 1, type 2 and type 3.

I would like to find out if type 1 has more points or is more relevant than type 2, and the relation between type 1 and type 3 and type 2 and type 3.

would this approach allow this for me?

1.median score for attidude (Analyze-> Descriptive Statistics -> Frequencies)

2.compare between two groups scores using Mann-whitney tests
(Analyze -> Non parametric test->2 independent samples)

cheers

I don't understand what you're asking. What do you mean by more points? That says to me, say a 7 point scale vs. a 5 point scale?

I think this "more points" is something like "highest overall score"... Though "more poits" or "more relevant" aren't the best ways to say so, I can't see any other explanation...

Anyway, descriptives are always useful, so do it. TO check the relation, use ANALYZE>DESCRIPTIVES>CROSSTABS and choose the appropriate correlations/tests.
