st: survey completion "flag"
(I've been unable to figure out how to post this request, so I'm
hitting the "reply" button to see if that works! I apologize - the
question has nothing to do with the message I'm replaying to!)
I am a very new user of Stata, so I apologize in advance if this is
a dumb question. I'm still learning how Stata "thinks" (compared to
SAS) and can't figure out how to tackle this:
I have a data set of responses to a very long (170 questions) survey
with many nested skip patterns, and about 2200 respondents. After
working out the skip codes, I still have many "missing" observations
for some items, and figure these are due to incomplete surveys. I
want to create some kind of "completion flag" to see which
respondents make it to the end of the survey, and - if they don't -
to see which question is the respondent's last (which is complicated
by the skip patterns).
I'm just not coming up with a sensible way to do this in Stata. Can
someone point me in the right direction?
