    Different main effect in MANOVA and two-way MANOVA? Which one do I use?

    I did a MANOVA in SPSS and there is a significant main effect of the IV on only one of my two DVs. Then I did a two way ANOVA to include one more IV, but otherwise use the same variables I've used in the MANOVA (just entered one additional variable). However, suddenly the same IV that had a sig...

    Should I use a MANOVA and then a two-way MANOVA or just the two-way MANOVA?

    My research questions: - Is there an effect of the independent variable on the two dependent variables? - Is this effect of the independent variable on the two dependent variables stronger for females as opposed to males? I did a MANOVA for question 1 and it's significant. I did a two-way...

I know I could use MANOVA for this. But what do I use if I want to determine the effect of an independent variable...

    What statistical test do I need to use for a moderator variable?

    For my study, I'm trying to test whether a variable acts as a moderator between the relationship of two other variables. I read that I should use moderational multiple regression with an interaction effect. However, I heard you can only use it if the moderator variable has 2 categories/ is...
