I have a qn about data regarding birth weight of babies born to smokers vs babies born to non-smokers. How would I work this out in SPSS? I have a column with smoking status, No = 0 and yes = 1, and then another column with birth weights. How would I use SPSS to find the mean birth weights, std deviation, an std error of mean for babies born to smokers vs mean birth weights, std deviation, an std error of mean for babies born to non-smokers?

Also, how does one generate a new variable, recode, and then find out percentages?

Thank you - I'm really clueless and struggling in this class so any help/pointers would be appreciated.

Thank you.
