Multiple or repeating records are placed one after the other, with the maximum number of occurrences of each section being represented in every case. Each variable in a repeating section is placed immediately after the preceding variable of the same occurrence, such that all variables for occurrence 1 precede all variables for occurrence 2 of a section. Each occurrence of every such variable must have its own name because statistical packages do not generally support the use of arrays or subscripts.
