I haven't collected data yet...still designing the study. Not strong in stats so I wanted advice on stat test. I need to determine if there is a relationship and control for age, tenure, children/no children
If you have an ordinal DV you should not use linear regression. This has nothing to do with controls. There are a series of violations of regression assumptions if you use linear regression with non-interval dv.
What form your predictors are don't matter so you can control whatever you want, just use logistic regression
