    dealing with categorical data

    I am currently doing a peice of coursework in statistics and one of the parts is to analyse a no trend 3 category set of data (A, B, C) against a binary (Yes/No).

    I am using SPSS and I am not sure which statistical test to be using to analyse this data.

    Can anyone help me please

    You probably want to be doing the standard contingency table stuff, starting with a chi-square type thing at the outset. From there, what you do is probably going to be dependent on the techniques you are learning; there are tons of different ways to dissect the data.

    I don't use SPSS, so I can't help you on that front. Sorry
