Hi,

I was wondering if it's possible to add labels to levels of transformed variables?

I realize that this can be done by specifying the "name" of the new level in the transform (the --> use '...' part), but I was wondering if there's a way to assign labels after? (also because not in all case you would change all the levels you have in the original variable)

For example, one variable I have is 'type of employment', and I have values from 1 to 7, each corresponding to a different one. I labeled them such as "full time", "part time", etc. But since some of these have a very small number of data, I want to merge categories 6 and 7 (Other) into one. So I can write (I think)

if $source == 5 use 6

else use $source

What I get in the transformed variable are 6 categories, but there is no way to label them... or is there? This is not such a big deal but it would help in understanding tables and graphs more easily.

Thanks,

Simona
