Split file according to 3 string questions

Aenni
Dear Team

I would love to get your advice on this issue.

I have data from a 2x2x3 experiment.
For this dataset I have 3 manipulation questions. I created three embedded data fields in the survey for these questions with the labels "Correct" and "Wrong".

Now, I would like to split my file in four versions to see if answering the 3 manipulation questions has an influence on my outcome.

To capture the correct/ wrong manipulation questions (ResponseReason, Attribution, Measure), I tried to create a filter variable - without success.
Perhaps someone could share some expertise about this issue and how to proceed.

Thanks so much!
Anna

My code for the filter varibale:

Do if (ResponseAttribution = "Correct" and ResponseMeasure = "Correct" and ResponseReason = "Correct").
FilterVar = 3.
ELSE if ((ResponseAttribution = "Correct" and ResponseMeasure = "Correct") or (ResponseAttribution = "Correct" and ResponseReason = "Correct") or (ResponseMeasure = "Correct" and ResponseReason = "Correct")).
FilterVar = 2.
Else if ResponseAttribution = "Correct" or ResponseMeasure = "Correct" or ResponseReason = "Correct".
FilterVar = 1.
else.
FilterVar = 0.
end if.
EXECUTE.

It looks like you're just counting the number of "Correct" responses.  If so, you can do it a lot more simply with the COUNT command.  

* Generate some data to illustrate.
DATA LIST LIST /  ResponseAttribution ResponseMeasure ResponseReason (3A10).
BEGIN DATA
"Incorrect" "Incorrect" "Incorrect"
"Correct" "Incorrect" "Incorrect"
"Incorrect" "Correct" "Incorrect"
"Incorrect" "Incorrect" "Correct"
"Correct" "Correct" "Incorrect"
"Correct" "Incorrect" "Correct"
"Incorrect" "Correct" "Correct"
"Correct" "Correct" "Correct"
END DATA.

COUNT FilterVar = ResponseAttribution ResponseMeasure ResponseReason ("Correct").
FORMATS FilterVar(F1).
LIST.

else.

Hi Bruce
Many thanks!
It's not really summing up the correct/ wrong answers. I would like to compare my results with "split file" when **at least** 1 (2, all) question(s) is(are) answered correctly.
So I need to somehow capture all cases in which all (two and one) manipulation check question have been correctly answered to see calculate the results when at least one manipulation check question is answered right and so on.

In order to fix your original code, you need to add COMPUTE commands, as shown below.

Do if (ResponseAttribution = "Correct" and ResponseMeasure = "Correct" and ResponseReason = "Correct").
COMPUTE FilterVar = 3.
ELSE if ((ResponseAttribution = "Correct" and ResponseMeasure = "Correct") or (ResponseAttribution = "Correct" and ResponseReason = "Correct") or (ResponseMeasure = "Correct" and ResponseReason = "Correct")).
COMPUTE FilterVar = 2.
Else if ResponseAttribution = "Correct" or ResponseMeasure = "Correct" or ResponseReason = "Correct".
COMPUTE FilterVar = 1.
else.
COMPUTE FilterVar = 0.
end if.
EXECUTE.

But notice that your code and my COUNT method yield exactly the same results.

* Generate some data to illustrate.
DATA LIST LIST /  ResponseAttribution ResponseMeasure ResponseReason (3A10).
BEGIN DATA
"Incorrect" "Incorrect" "Incorrect"
"Correct" "Incorrect" "Incorrect"
"Incorrect" "Correct" "Incorrect"
"Incorrect" "Incorrect" "Correct"
"Correct" "Correct" "Incorrect"
"Correct" "Incorrect" "Correct"
"Incorrect" "Correct" "Correct"
"Correct" "Correct" "Correct"
END DATA.

Do if (ResponseAttribution = "Correct" and ResponseMeasure = "Correct" and ResponseReason = "Correct").
COMPUTE FilterVar = 3.
ELSE if ((ResponseAttribution = "Correct" and ResponseMeasure = "Correct") or (ResponseAttribution = "Correct" and ResponseReason = "Correct") or (ResponseMeasure = "Correct" and ResponseReason = "Correct")).
COMPUTE FilterVar = 2.
Else if ResponseAttribution = "Correct" or ResponseMeasure = "Correct" or ResponseReason = "Correct".
COMPUTE FilterVar = 1.
else.
COMPUTE FilterVar = 0.
end if.
EXECUTE.

COUNT FilterVar2 = ResponseAttribution ResponseMeasure ResponseReason ("Correct").
FORMATS FilterVar FilterVar2(F1).
LIST.

OUTPUT:

ResponseAttribution ResponseMeasure ResponseReason FilterVar FilterVar2
 
Incorrect           Incorrect       Incorrect          0          0
Correct             Incorrect       Incorrect          1          1
Incorrect           Correct         Incorrect          1          1
Incorrect           Incorrect       Correct            1          1
Correct             Correct         Incorrect          2          2
Correct             Incorrect       Correct            2          2
Incorrect           Correct         Correct            2          2
Correct             Correct         Correct            3          3
 
Number of cases read:  8    Number of cases listed:  8


So if my COUNT method is not giving the result what you want, neither is your original code.

Is this what you're trying to do?

COUNT NumCorrect = ResponseAttribution ResponseMeasure ResponseReason ("Correct").
COMPUTE atleast1 = NumCorrect GT 0.
COMPUTE atleast2 = NumCorrect GT 1.
COMPUTE atleast3 = NumCorrect GT 2.
FORMATS NumCorrect atleast1 to atleast3 (F1).
CROSSTABS
 /TABLES = NumCorrect by atleast1 to atleast3
 /TABLES = atleast1 by atleast2 atleast3
 /TABLES = atleast2 by atleast3.

Hi Bruce

Thanks so much for your support! I really appreciate it!

I guess I have to model different variables to capture it. But I'm not quite sure.
I would like to show
for 0 (or any other number/ string): when I have no restriction about correct/ wrong questions --> include all cases
for 1: when at least 1 question is correct --> include cases with 1,2,3 correct questions
for 2: when at least 2 questions are correct --> include cases with 2,3 correct questions
for 3: when all 3 questions are correct --> include only those cases in which all 3 questions are correctly answered

Does this make sense?

If there are several things you want to do under each of those conditions, you could stick the basic code in a separate syntax file, and then run it multiple times via INCLUDE FILE.  E.g., if the basic syntax is in file BasicSyntax.sps:  

USE ALL.
FILTER OFF.
INCLUDE FILE = "BasicSyntax.sps".

USE ALL.
FILTER BY atleast1.
INCLUDE FILE = "BasicSyntax.sps".

USE ALL.
FILTER BY atleast2.
INCLUDE FILE = "BasicSyntax.sps".

USE ALL.
FILTER BY atleast3.
INCLUDE FILE = "BasicSyntax.sps".


You cannot simply use SPLIT FILE (as you suggested previously), because your filtering categories are not mutually exclusive.

But please use INSERT rather than the obsolete INCLUDE.

Right.  Thanks Jon.  I was going by memory, and got it wrong!

Re: Split file according to 3 string questions

Aenni
Thanks so much!
I tried a couple of options now to play a bit with the syntax.
Many thanks for the great help!
