I am doing a secondary data analysis of Women's empowerment and HIV-KAB in Zambia and my outcome measure is 'comprehensive knowledge (CK) of HIV aids. I intend to use binary logistic regression for the study and have tried to create the CK variable on SPSS. However I am not able to create it as a 1/0 variable. I have found certain other studies that have used this variable as an outcome measure but they have used stata for the same.
I was wondering if it is possible to create a 1/0 variable on SPSS for comprehensive knowledge (I tried using Compute new variable - and gave the IF command to check if answers to the 5 questions about HIV, were answered correctly ; and also recode into new variable - but it did not work.)
If someone has created this variable on SPSS before it would be great if you could share the syntax with me.
