Change Level of Measurement

Discussion in 'SPSS' started by Katsche.Schwarzenbeck, Jan 19, 2006.

  1. A maybe stupid question: How can I change the leve of measurement in
    the syntax? I need to change the level from scale to ordinal or
    nominal in a big dataset and would have thought that this can be done
    easily in syntax (part of the Formats command maybe), but so far, I
    have not found anything in the Command Syntax Guide.

    Here's an example from the syntax reference guide.

    sales95 sales96 (SCALE) /
    region division (NOMINAL) /
    expense (ORDINAL).
