First, you need to do a frequency distribution on the variable AGE so that you can examine all of the values of AGE and you will be able to identify the VALID VALUES (this means non-missing values) of AGE and make intelligent, thoughtful, choices for the categories to be created when you create AGE2. I have the following suggestions. 1 When you create the category for teens, your range should be from LOWEST thru 19, and you need to assign this category a value of 1. 2 For the category of twenties, your range should be 20 thru 29, and you need

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
