Stats for Survey Responses

#1
Hello,

We have received over 2000 reponses from an online survey we ran.

I am intersted to see if there is a relationship between two questions...i.e time spent performing a certain task and no: of times athletes drank water when performing the task. There were five options for both.

My question to the forum is, what statsistcal test (SPSS) could we use to answer this question.

Any help greatfully recieved and much appreciated.

Many thanks

:)

It would spare readers' time if you properly described the measurement scales (the "options").
There is a huge difference between "0, 1, 2, 3, 4 times" or for example "never, once, 2-5 times,
6-10 times, more than 10 times". If I suppose that it is something which has more from the
second example, then you could perform a Spearman rank correlation.

With kind regards

There are many ways to check for a relationship between two variables. CHi square and correlation/ regression will probably work best in your case.
