What I have assumed from the authoritative discussion of famous Stata men, Nick and Maarten, I was wondering the way to my lecture on how to do the solution. What I have learnt from this discussion and one possibility from Qualitative Data Analysis, I wonder if only percentage terms would do the job here. If we only get what skill has been ranked by what percent of all the responses, we can count and calculate the percentage. I assume the remaining with ZERO responses are not countable and of interest as these are not indicated by the respondents. The strategy to go for the solution (I guess only, not sure of) to count each skills at for its position and then count how many people have indicated (also the same thing as counting the position). I am sure this not a good answer, but I was only wondering if it could do a bit of help.

The other skills (which they find less important) are not given any score (they are zero in my data). The data for that question thus looks somewhat as follows (example for 3 companies, one row per company: > > > My question is: what kind of statistical analysis should I do, and how, to find out whether certain skills are ranked as more (or less) important than others by the companies, and if this difference is significant? > I tried to do this with a chi-square test for goodness of fit, but i got the error: too many variables specified. > > > Can somebody please help me? > Thank you! > * > * For searches and help try: > * http://www.stata.com/help.cgi?search > * http://www.stata.com/support/statalist/faq > * http://www.ats.ucla.edu/stat/stata/ -- Best --------------------------- Muhammad Anees Assistant Professor/Programme Coordinator COMSATS Institute of Information Technology Attock 43600, Pakistan http://www.aneconomist.com * * For searches and help try: * http://www.stata.com/help.cgi?search * http://www.stata.com/support/statalist/faq * http://www.ats.ucla.edu/stat/stata/
