Fluorite | Level 6

Hi all,


Students where requested to complete a survey but some students didn't answer all the questions (Question1 to Question12). The survey consist of 12 questions.  I want to create a variable  to flag ( variable name: complete)  students that didn't answer three or more questions from the survey. 


The questions that are not answered are coded as missing  "."  


The variable names for the questions are question1 = item1, question2= item2,  question3= item3 etc. 


For example,

  • if a student answered more than 10 questions then complete=1
  • If a student answered only 5 questions then complete = 0
  • If a student answered only 11 questions then complete = 1
  • If a student answered only 9 questions then complete = 0


Appreciate your assistance in writing up the sas code. Through array?

Obviously, this is untested, since I can't see your data


data want;
   set have;
   complete = (n(of item:) > 9);

And what should happen if exactly 10 answers are correct?

Posting data in usable form helps us to provide tested code.
