    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...
