Which test should I use? Dichotomous independent + numeric dependent

#1
Hi everyone!

I am in doubt about which test I should conduct. My indepent variable is dichotomous: values 0 = no presence of female combatants in conflict and 1= presence of female combatants in conflict). So indepent variable is eiter no/ yes My dependent variable is the duration of conflict in days.

Hope someone can help me out!

Best,

Annabel

You can compare means between the groups and use the t-test with Welch correction.
If your sample size is small, then Mann-Whitney U-test for the rank- transformed dependent
variable.

With kind regards
