Attrition can occur for a vari­ ety of reasons. In psychotherapy or counseling, individuals may come to the first couple of sessions and not after that. In medicine, compliance with taking some type of medication is a problem. Shadish et al. (2002, p. 325) note: Other times attrition is caused by the research process. The demands of research exceed those normally expected by treatment recipients. An example is the tradeoff between the researcher's desire to measure many relevant constructs as accurately as possible and the respondent's desire to minimize the time spent in answering questionnaires.

Also, multiple cases can go on the same line, with the values for the variables separated by blanks or commas. When that data is part of the command file, then the BEGIN DATA command precedes the data and the END DATA follows the last line of data. We can use the keyword TO in specifying a set of consecutive variables, rather than listing all the variables. For example, if we had the six variables Xl, X2, X3, X4, X5, X6, the following subcommands are equivalent: VARIABLES=X1, X2, X3, X4, X5, X6/ or VARIABLES=X1 TO X6/ MISSING VALUES-The missing values command consists of a variables name(s) with value for each variable in parentheses: Examples: MISSING VALUES X (8) Y (9) Here 8 is used to denote missing for variable X and 9 to denote missing for variable Y.
