Standard errors for each level?

I have a bunch of variables with two possible values: 1 for "Yes" and 2 for "No". I need to get the standard errors for each separately (the standard error for "yes" and the standard error for "no"), but in SPSS, I can only find how to get standard errors for means. Anyone know a quick way to get standard errors for each level individually? Thanks!!

If P is the probability of yes, then (1-P) is the probability of no. If you known P with error e, then you know (1-P) with exactly the same error. If yes is coded a 1 and no as 0, then the mean is the probability of yes, so the error bar on the mean is the error bar on the probability of yes.

Thanks! Just to clarify: the variables are survey questions, so with the answer choices "Yes" and "No". So what I need to do is get the frequencies of each answer choice and the standard error for each as well.
