I have a dependent variable which is a function of 12 parameters.

each parameter has several sub parameters which are basically questions asked from respondents on certain issues at two different time periods.

I have taken the percentage change in the responses for the sub parameter. I have then put a weightage to the percentage change so that I do not have a very wide peaks in data.

so i have assigned points to this change in response as per below -

__points %age change__

0 0 or less than 0

1 0-25%

2 26%-50%

3 51%-75%

4 76%-100%

5 more than 100%

when i add up the points, i hope to get a sum of how each subparameter is influencing the parameter. further, by putting how many different subparameters come under different parameters, i can get how much each parameter is affecting the dependent variable.

i need to write two sets of equations. one for the parameters and then one for the subparameters and i need help.
