    Distribution of DV in multiple OLS regression

    Thanks for all your answers. I also checked the scatter plot showing the standardized residuals vs standardized expected values. You can identify three diagonal lines in the plot. I guess thats due to the three peaks in the frequency distribution of my DV. Is this problematic? I read the...

    Distribution of DV in multiple OLS regression

    Hi Karabiner, thanks for your answer. I thought the normality assumption applies only to the residuals? Sample size is about 130. Well, I guess thats open for debate. Researchers in my field interpret the mean of multiple Likert-Scale items as continuous. The graph shows the plain and simple...

    Distribution of DV in multiple OLS regression

    Hi obh, Yes. The items measure different facets of an overarching construct (reflective construct). Yes. Residuals distribute normally.

    Distribution of DV in multiple OLS regression

    Hello, I am running a multiple linear OLS regression on a DV with the following frequency distribution. The DV is the mean of 5 Likert-scale items (thus, pseudo-metric as common in social sciences). I know that the DV does not have to be normally distributed in multiple linear OLS regression...

    IVs and moderator variables correlate in three-way interaction - problematic?

    Hi everybody, let's assume I hypothesize: H1: A direct effect of X1 on Y H2: A direct effect of X2 on Y H3: A two-way interaction between X1 and X2 H4: A three-way interaction between X1, X2 and X3 H5: A three-way interaction between X1, X2 and X4 and run the following OLS regressions to test...
