Hi All,

Ive been given this question:

Categorise the participants into high stress and low stress groups. Compare the two groups in relation to another psychological variable while controlling for a second variable.

The data i have available (which i don't need to use all) is age, gender, year group (university years 1,2,3), stress(high low), resilience (high low), alcohol( frequency of consumption and quantity), health belief (eating and sleeping habits, stress, weight regulation and total of all three), life orientation (high low).

So from this i have to use stress, however for an ANCOVA which would be the better variable to use. i did come up with few ideas, however i think i have been over thinking the question now.

If anyone has any ideas along with literature to confirm i would very much appreciate it

Many thanks in advance!
