Ama,

It's not possible to answer such a general question. What do your yes/no questions measure? What do you mean about wanting to compute a dependent variable? This implies a multivariate analysis of some sort. What is your dependent variable supposed to measure? What kind of multivariate analysis did you have in mind? Also, is this a homework assignment or a class project of some sort?

Good day stata listers,
I'm confronted to an issue, in fact I'm running a survey, on the
questionnaire  there is a lot of yes/no questions and I would like to
compute a dependent variable from those yes/no question but I don't
how ?I've heard about scoring , someone  else advised  me  to compute
a proportional dependant variable but this seem more as an intuitive
method  as I didn't- come across with any relevant literature  related
to that method,

Any hint would be highly appreciated

Thanks a lot in advance.

Ama
