Recoding nominal variables into dummy variables

With apologies for triviality, does JASP's Compute Columns feature have a straight-forward way of recoding nominal variables into dummy variables, while preserving missing values?

I am trying to turn a nominal variable with values from 1 to 21 into a set of 20 dummy variables. The main difficulty seems to be keeping missing values as such. The approaches I have tried all turn missing values into "actual" values.

Thanks!

Heiko

  • Hi Heiko,

    Could you please send me the jasp file [firstLetter].{lastName}@jasp-stats.org with a description of what you'd like to do to which variable? Then I can respond more tangibly.

    Cheers,

    Alexander
