Research methods - Comparing high and low risk sports

#1
I am currently conducting a piece of research that aims to find if there is a difference between personality traits between participants of high and low risk sports.

I have collected personality questionnaires which have collected information on the respondents personalities (5 factors)

I AM NOW TRYING TO CRUNCH THIS DATA!

I have conducted a Mann Whitney u test on the data for each of the factors independently and this has shown no significant difference between the two groups at the 5% level.

Is there another test that would be appropriate to carry out, for example one that would take into acount all 5 factors.

I am also wondering if anyone knows a good way to display the Mann Whitney U test results.

Regards,
Dan

Less is more. Stay pure. Stay poor.

It seems to me that your dependent variable is participation yes/no, how are your trait variables formatted?

Some programs can provide a figure like a bar graph that shows the percentages above and below the median for both groups. So two bars, see below:

Thank you for getting back to me,

I'm not quite sure,

I think it would be easier for you to look at the attached document rather than have me try and explain. New methodology is the important sheet to look at. I will say however that the numbers on the right hand side of the table are averages of the corrasponding questions which are listed on the same table.
