 Hello all, I was just wondering if anyone could possibly help...I am an undergrad student currently doing my honours project and new to SPSS.  I did my questionnaire on Qualtrics and have managed to get it to SPSS fine. On my questionnaire I asked the respondent their nationality and to also state their supervisors nationality. This is 2 separate variables on SPSS, I am now trying to make a new variable which will allow me to put the information together for example Please specify your nationality 1= Indian 2= Filipino 3= British Please Specify your supervisors nationality 1= Indian 2= Filipino 3= British I want the new variable to show that if the respondent is 1 (indian) and their supervisor is 1 (indian) then in the new variable it would show as 1 and 1 = 1 (which would mean they are of the same nationality, both indian) OR in some cases respondent is 2 (filipino) and their supervisor is 1 (Indian) therefore in the new variable it would be 1 and 3 = 2 (which would mean nationalities are different, respondent is Filipino and supervisor is Indian. Any help would be greatly appreciated! Thank you!!

 Hello Bruce, My research is to see if culture (one's nationality) has an impact on leadership in the cruise industry, in terms of crews perceptions of their supervisor (leader). I asked respondents to rate statements (based on previous literature into leadership by Hofstede and House et al) on a 5 point likert (strongly agree- strongly disagree) and I also asked respondents to state their own nationality and the nationality of their supervisor. I am now trying to analyse my data to see if when the respondent is of the same nationality of their supervisor their perspectives are altered and vice versa and to do this I thought I would need to create a variable that shows when nationalities are the same or not the same (with all possible combinations of nationalities). So I think I need to see if those two variables combined impact upon the statements. I hope this makes sense! Thanks

 In reply to this post by gemma_w516 Apologies. JointNationality and JointNatl should have the same name. In any case, use John Hall's code instead. COMPUTE JointNationality = 2. IF  (EgoNatl = SupNatl) JointNationality=1.
