    Controlling for response bias where all goals are positively related to well-being: regression or mean-centering?

    Hi, I am conducting a study where I've asked participants to rate how much they aspire towards 13 different life goals and want to know how upholding these various goals is related to well-being. However, it has been noted in the literature - and my data shows this as well - that essentially...

    Estimating share of fixed and variable costs

    Hi, I would like to estimate to what degree (e.g. 20% fixed) the costs of e.g. a central function like HR develop with the growth of e.g. Revenue within a company. My first though would be a regression for estimating HR costs Y if sales (X) go up by $1. However I'm supposed to classify HR costs...

    Distribution of DV in multiple OLS regression

    Hello, I am running a multiple linear OLS regression on a DV with the following frequency distribution. The DV is the mean of 5 Likert-scale items (thus, pseudo-metric as common in social sciences). I know that the DV does not have to be normally distributed in multiple linear OLS regression...

    Other remedial measures for multicollinearity?

    I have log transform my model already, choose per capita variables but multicollinearity is still a problem. I plan to drop the variable which has the highest vif (over 200)... however, I read somewhere that I will be subjected to specification error/bias. I need to address this one since...
