Hello,
maybe my question ist stupid, but I would like to calculate a new variable for all cases in my dataset. Inspired by the dialog in Rcmdr I tried
Datenmatrix$cohigha<- with(Datenmatrix,mean (c(M2ORG, M5ORG, M8ORG, M11ORG), na.rm = TRUE)
as output I got the same number for all my cases (possibly the overallmean of all cases), instead of a mean for each case.
Can you help me with this problem?
regards
Matthias
