A number of things have advanced. Bugs have been fixed. I can recall that Ben's worked on understanding the SPSS output format and, more recently the matrix language.

But I don't think PSPP has been racing to feature parity with SPSS and I'm not aware that work in supporting multiple response sets has worked. I analyze such data all the time without this feature (by reading each response as an individual variable), so if Ben or John were to turn to that, they would need help from users who use that feature.

I asked this question 6 years ago and got the answer that unfortunately, up to then PSPP wasn't really able to handle multiple response questions, a standard in survey research.

Has anything advanced since then ?

Thanks in advance

I found the MRSETS command which allows to analyse multiple reponse questions; But the MULT RESPONSE command has not yet been implemented, according to the manual. So how to analyse mult response questions ? What can you do with MRSETS when you have no Mult response frequencies or tables ?
Or do I miss something ?

And what does the cryptic sentence mean (manual p.113)
Otherwise, multiple response sets are currently used only by third party software.
Could you please be more specific ? Which third party software do you mean ?
