Compute Likert-Scale Measures

#1
Hello all,

My supervisor provided me with a dataset of which I am computing the variables. In the questionnaire, items were provided with a 7-point Likert-scale (1 = fully disagree; 7 = fully agree).
In my data set, all DV value-labels are set up as below. However, the value labels seem strange to me. For instance, value "2" is skipped.
Should I makes all value-labels equal (1=1; 2=2; 3=3, 4=4; 5=5; 6=6; 7=7)? Or is this a normal way of labeling?

Value 1 = Label "Fully disagree"
Value 3 = Label "2"
Value 4 = Label "3"
Value 5 = Label "4"
Value 6 = Label "5"
Value 7 = Label "6"
Value 8 = Label "Fully agree"

This is not a Likert scale, but the response format of a Likert-type item.
Likert scale is the name of an instrument which consists of 2 or more Likert-type items which are summed up.

Ask your supervisor why the "2" response doesn't exist. Maybe it's a simple mistake.

With kind regards
