## Using SPSS for descriptive comparative stats between a respondent and the sample population

 This post was updated on . I have conducted a survey with 800 respondents. I am looking to give each respondent comparative feedback of how they have done compared to the average of the whole sample population.  Eg: Each respondent will be given a score on the healthiness of their overall menu. I need to provide them with descriptive statistics of how their overall menu score has compared with the average score for overall menus of the rest of the sample population. I want to find out the method of doing this using the SPSS statistical analysis software and if so if anyone has any online tutorials/ guides on how I can do this. Any examples will also be valuable. Many thanks!!

## Re: Using SPSS for descriptive comparative stats between a respondent and the sample population

 I think this is a problem for the aggregate command. The idea is to add a new variable to each record that is the average of all the records, i.e., the sample mean. So for some person you want to say, your average is 4.35; the average of the whole group is 5.01. I think that satisfies what you wanted. So. Do this. Aggregate outfile=* mode=addvariables/groupmean=mean(score). Now then, the person's score is included in the computation of the group mean. You may not want that but if so, something can be done but you can ask.

## Re: Using SPSS for descriptive comparative stats between a respondent and the sample population

 In reply to this post by ericanicoledsouza Feedback to a general population?  IQ does that.  Percentiles are more intelligible to most people. Since "healthiness" is a fairly fuzzy concept, I expect that telling them which decile they belong in would suffice, unless you want to be even less fine-grain. For percentile or decile, you can check the RANK procedure.  If you want to use just a few categories, I think that you would want categories like (should be better, okay, better than most) -- which should be based on an intelligent decision based on the meaning of the health scores. -- Rich Ulrich From: SPSSX(r) Discussion <[hidden email]> on behalf of ericanicoledsouza <[hidden email]> Sent: Tuesday, October 18, 2016 6:57 PM To: [hidden email] Subject: Using SPSS for descriptive comparative stats between a respondent and the sample population   I have conducted a survey with 800 respondents.
