### 02. Video Tutorials (2)

Create dummy variables from an existing categorical variable in SPSS

This video explains how to use SPSS to dummy code categorical variables. Often, this is required if you want to use the variable in regression, but it has more than 2 categories. This resource is contributed to the statstutor Community project by Christine Pereira, Brunel University and reviewed by Vikki O'Neill, Queen's University Belfast.
