Dear all,
I'm working on a dataset that has recorded the drug treatment and their response for a number of patients over one year.

however to assign them one of 3 "improved responses" there is a standard definition.
That is a improvement of 30% (a percentage increase) in 3 of any 6 clinical variables and a decrease in no more than 1. this gives them a  criteria of "acr30".

In addition to this, I also wish to create improvement of 50% and 70%, and combine them into one categorical variable.

I was wondering what the best way of doing this would be?

regards
sham
