When uploading an spss file you'll see an option appearing to define the multiple choice question separator. Below you see the example:
An example of a multiple choice question is:
Which of the following did you purchase today:
- Fast food
- Ice cream
This seems to be one question, but the answers are usually not stored in one column, but a column per answer, as below.
Note: be careful in defining the multi choice separator. In case you have other variables which should not be a multiple but with this character, it will define these as a multiple too.
Two other options belonging to the Multi choice separator, are "Compute an additional answer. This is used to correct the base size in case you have only missings for a respondent for all answers that belong to that multiple, but you would like to have this respondent counted in the base. In this case Dapresy can create an additional answer option which gets counted when a respondent didn't answer any.
Last but not least we can also group open numeric into a Multiple Choice Question.
