How to create an index with ranking question?

Craz_edmoon
Hey I am new to  SPSS and have needs to create an index with a ranking question...thing is I have no idea how to do that...


The question goes like this 'Rank the following factors according to how important it is to you, from 1-5, 1 being the most important and 5 being the most important factor'...

The five factors are as followed: Price, Quality, durability, design and comfort of using.

My groupmates and I wanted to find out how many people choose price as the most important factor, Quality as the most important factor, durability and so on...

You can get MULT RESPONSE frequencies and crosstabs. see <help>.

Please describe in more detail what you mean by an index.
Make up a few cases with an id variable and 5 variables for the 5 "factors" and a variable called want that show what you want the index to be.

Have you checked the frequencies for your original variables?
 
Open a new syntax file and write:
 
freq v1 to v5 .
 
or whatever your variables are called.
 
This looks like your homework: is it?

Thanks for the help...this is actually a group project. I ended up recoding the variables to find out which are the most important factors...I'm not sure if that's what my tutor wanted though...
