Dear Chanda,

What you propose is commonly done but may not always be best.
It depends on the relationship between the traits; another way would be to
treat the
4 traits as six traits. The point is whether it is obvious which of the
repeated trait values,
the unrepeated trait is associated with. You need to make sure you allow
the repeatability
in the model.

with God's love in the Name of Jesus Christ.
