Hi there I have a very important question for my statistical analysis which needs to be finished in a few days.
First of all I have to say that I have not much knowledge of statistics and therefore have problems to understand most of the answers for similar questions.
My question is:
I have conducted a survey with nine questions grouped into 3 variables (3 questions for each variable). Now I would like to have the score my variable which results from the 3 questions in each variable. So now I'm wondering how can I get my scores for the single variables? Can I calculate the mean of the scores from every respondent and then use the mean? Would that be okay?
I would be happy if I got a quick (and easy :D) answer. Thank you!!
