Hi, I have seven dummy variables to measure patient's anxiety (1=Yes, 2= No) with around 1500 observations, and I would like to do scale construction using proc factor. But I know proc factor requires continuous data, how should I do with the seven dummy variables? Can anybody show me how to do that?

 

Thanks!
