1. ### Which statistical test I have to use for pre/post test?

Dear readers, I am wirting my thesis and I would like to test the effects of an mindfulness Intervention (independent variable) on reducing depressive, anxiety and stress symptoms (3 dependent variables). I have a pre and post-test for this and I would also like to include a control group...
2. ### Regression Analysis

Hello, It would be great if somebody can help me with this: Is it correct to conduct factor analysis on data source (A) and then run a simple regression analysis with derived factor from factor analysis as independent variable and a item from the same data source (A) as dependent variable...
3. ### Question concerning an "unusual" research design

Hey everyone, I have a question concerning a between group research-design and I wonder if it is very wise since I never came across a similar design (the provided example is of course fictional). Basically, i want to randomly assign participants into 4 groups (one control condition). For...
4. ### Variance of parts equal to variance of whole?

Good morning, I ran a hierarchical regression to test if variables A and B (established in the literature) are mediated by variable C (my research question) when predicting overall performance in a university unit. Block 1 was variables A and B using enter method. Block 2 included variable C...
5. ### Using a kurtosis statistic as a dependent variable

Hi everyone, I am working on a research project in public policy and I am testing kurtosis for on the year-to-year budget changes (as %) in different policy areas. In the literature we know there will more than likely be L-kurtosis so I want to take it one step further. I would like to...
6. ### Dependent variable in regression model - sum of factors?

I got across below article due to one of our student used it for the brand loyalty measure. http://www.palgrave-journals.com/jt/journal/v15/n4/full/5750044a.html I have a hard time to understand what is the dependent variable in this regression model - I did not find it explicitly mentioned...
7. ### Categorical data tested for several factors: which test should I use?

Hi guys, I'm currently doing a research project as part of my internship on mangrove damage along a river as a consequence of a major flood event. Shoreline was analysed for 1 meter sections. For each section my data comprises of the categorical categories mortality (yes/no) and certain...
8. ### Two IV's (Nominal, both multi-level), One DV (Interval). What do I run????

Help needed, I am trying to escape ABD hell. I am only a couple of statistical procedures away from slaying the dissertation beast and have hit a wall. I am needing a statistical procedure that would allow me to compare the means of the number of sessions (DV) per adult attachment style (IV...
9. ### Dependance between categorical variables in a whole population

Hello, I have a population of 507 documents (which represent the entire phenomena studied at a give time period) from which a series of variables -most of which are nominal- where extracted. The end goal was to describe said phenomena and establish the possibility that the outcome is...
10. ### Estimating parameter from conditionals of non-independent data

The context of this problem is the estimation of the distribution of a parameter v given sets of data A and B, where A and B are not independent. Suppose I know P(v | A) and P(v | B). Both of these distributions are definitely not normal (the answer should not make any assumptions about the...
