I have just started using SPSS, and as I expected I have got stuck..
I work with diabetes through a scool project. I have a large dataset,
with a lot of patients and a lot of variables, but my problem is that
I don`t have a variable of diabetes (yes or no), so i have to create
I want to create it, based on the other clinical information I have on
my patients, namely their *** sugar and the time since last meal.
Diabetes is defined as (in my case);
Having a *** sugar above 11.0, regardless of time since last meal
having a *** sugar above 7.1 given that the last meal was ingested
more than 6 hours ago .
Both the category ( *** sugar) and (time since last meal) are given
in their recorded numbers, thei are not classified as low/high or
something like that.
I have tried to do this in the recode and transform windows, but I
think I may be more sucsessfull in the syntax.
I think I have given suffiicient information on my problem for some of
you to help me solve it, I would apreciate any help I could get!
