I have three variables of interest (all 3 ordinal - x, y and z, each of them with 5 categories) from which I want to make smaller groups (just an example 1st category from X variable with the 2nd and 3rd categories from the Y category and 2, 3 and 4 categories from the Z category etc) based on their, let's say, association with mortality.
