Gabor,
Here is some further clarification using a toy example.
dataframe layout
v1 v2 v3 v4
Person1 1 NA 3 2
Person2 2 2 2 2
Person3 1 NA 2 2
I am looking for the proportion of time each person used a 2 code across the
variables v1 to v4. For example, using the above data, the answer would look
as follows:
Person1 33%
Person2 100%
Person3 66%
Thanks again,
Greg Blevins
