Thank you for this definition. I have a question about how I analyze this in SPSS now. (please bear with me as I am VERY new to this and don't really know what I am doing). I just ran a process to clean the data for missing values and included these repeating variables. However, I'm not sure this is the correct procedure as the output show that there are hundreds of missing values from these repeating variables. I don't understand how to analyze these values because if I replace each missing value with the calculated mean, this will grossly skew the data.
So my question to you is, how do I analyze this data in SPSS, accounting for missing data? I feel like I am missing a big piece of the puzzle and don't even know where to look for it. Any help you can offer would be amazing and I would be eternally grateful.
(I hope I have articulated myself well-enough).
