Hi all, I was wondering if anyone could suggest a simple way to do the following job. The data set is like this: ----------------------------------------------------------------------- caseid var1 var2 var3 var4 ......... var10 1 6 8 9 15 ... 11 2 3 4 5 7 ... 0 3 1 2 10 14 ... 26 . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . ------------------------------------------------------------------------ I want to find out for each case totally how many times the values for var1,var 2....var20 are under 10. I think I could creat dummy variables defining 1 for those variable's value is under 10. That is as follows: ----------------------------------------------------------------------- caseid new_var1 new_var2 new_var3 new_var4 ...new_var10 1 1 1 1 0 ... 0 2 1 1 1 1 ... 1 3 1 1 0 0 ... 0 . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . ------------------------------------------------------------------------ And then I could creat a new variable as sum_var=new_var1 + new_var2 +.....+new_var10 My question is, is there any way more simple than this?
