Questions

Questions (8)
Question
The date for the dependent variable ( death count ), and for the independent variable (air pollutants), is different. How do we arrange it in a spreadsheet and how lag days are formed? Also, I have other two variables like age and sex.
Question
I have data of blood pressure, fasting blood glucose and post prandial (after lunch) blood glucose level. I wonder if have to analyze with each data such as fasting glucose level with systolic blood pressure, fasting blood glucose level with diastolic blood pressure and so on, or is there another way to do? For instance, can I merge the fasting and postprandium and categorize as diabetes, no diabetes etc? Similarly can I just analyze fasting blood glucose level and post prandial blood glucose level with blood pressure without categorizing diastolic and systolic?
Question
Especially when second research question is dependent on the significant result of the first research research question ?  
Question
How to know whether we should keep it as covariate or factors in ordinal regression when using SPSS? 
Question
Is ordinal regression and ordered ordinal logit model the same? I read that there are different types of ordinal regression. How can I understand which type of ordinal regression should I use and analyze in SPSS in a simple way? 
Question
I have two variable M17= income of the respondent and M19= income of the spouse. I want to compute income of each male respondent and income of each female respondent. How can I do that? What command should I use?
Question
I have four questions and I want to make it one variable. The one variable I wanted to make is work-family conflict. The coding I have 1= several times a week, 2= several times a month, 3= once or twice in three month, 4= Never happened and 0= Not applicable. I can here re code it and change it to greater the value, higher the conflict. 
But to make one variable, should I add all the questions ? If I do so, I will get number ranging from something like 2 to 16, does it give any sense.In this case, should I exclude 'Not applicable' option, because I think, this option distorts the total value. And, If I have to exclude this, how can I do it in SPSS?
Suppose, I excluded this option and the range I got is 4 to 16, is it still meaningful ? Is it possible to recode as a  low, moderate and high conflict? If it is not the right way, What else I can do? 
Question
''Several times a week, once a week'', which variable is this ? and how can I recode it in SPSS?
