Creating Dummy Variables on SPSS

The video below runs through the process of creating dummy variables on SPSS. Dummy variables allow you to use nominal explanatory variables with more than two categories in your multiple linear regression model. To view a full-screen version you can go to the Youtube page by either clicking on the Youtube icon in the bottom right corner of the video or by using the link above the preview.

NOTE: Some of the variables and outputs from this example may differ slightly to the examples on the main website pages. Do not worry - these changes are relatively minor and the general principles remain the same!
