i want to ask two questions one regarding to statistics and the other one relates to how to perform it on SPSS.

i have a questionarrie of 18 questions. each question have 2 options of answer (you can say dichotomous binary response)

i have overall 12 responders (i kmow its a small N but i am just doing a pretest to those questions).

my professor asked me to find the distributions of the answer.

each question is not related to the other question.

how do i find the distributions of the answer for each question?

You can use the analyse ->frequencies command.

Or does he want you to sum up all 18 responses and display the resulting variable?
In that case, use Transform->Compute and then frequencies.

With kind regards

thank you for your replay,

i would like a follow up if it's ok with you:

so basicaly my questions goes like this:
would you prefer 950 now or 1000 (let's say dollars) in a month from now?

now i got this same question, with only the "now" changing, while the 1000 in the future remains constant (in a 50 dollars decreasing each time):
would you prefer 900 now or 1000 (let's say dollars) in a month from now?
would you prefer 850 now or 1000 (let's say dollars) in a month from now?
"..... 800... 1000..... "
.
.
.
and the last one:
would you prefer 700 now or 1000 (let's say dollars) in a month from now?

now for each question like that i got two answers:
1 - i will 950 (or other number depends on which question he is) now.
2 - i will wait a month (to have the 1000 dollars).

now i have some answers,
and my professor wants to know the distribution of those answers,

what do you think, how should i do that? (it is already coded in SPSS as 1 [the first answer] 2 [second answer])

You can for example use the analyse->frequencies procedure.
