    Qualifiers, Factor Analysis and Regression

    I'm working on a project that wants me to do factor analyses that generate an IV. Basically some groups of questions and no IV. And I'm told the IV will be generated by the FA. Any ideas? Then I'm supposed to put the questions into a regression model. Somehow I can put the outcome of the FA into...

    Graph with multiple IV's.

    Please find the file here: https://drive.google.com/open?id=1X9_h6k9YCdY-05t7EWnW6W_dCUWwS1R5 The first column is the x axis. I want to place all the other varibles (and a few more variabes just like these) on the y axis. I think I have a total of 10 varibles so I'll have to use 10 different...

    Graph with multiple IV's.

    thanks. such an easy thing to do so much work :( I cant upload the sample data in excel or spss format. :/

    Graph with multiple IV's.

    Hello Forum, I would like to learn how to construct a line graph on SPSS with a few variables on the Y axis. I could not find the solution online. I don't even think it's doable. Is it? Thanks.

    Which test to use?

    Well I checked it with a stats prof. and she said the reason why the numbers are off the charts is b/c the two groups are way off balance. The frequency is like %95 - %5 so there's no significance whatsoever.. BLR is just a fancy name we use as master statisticians to differ ourselves from the...

    ? about using categorical variables in correlations

    Hi noetsi, what are you doing in the Psych forums :') God I hope I don't have to do that one b/c I've never heard of it! I'll check it out though. :) Thanks.

    ? about using categorical variables in correlations

    I thought they all meant the same thing but if I had to pick, I'd pick binary. My categorical variable is coded as : 0/1 or No/Yes. And I also thought nonparametric meant categorical (in a sense at least). I guess it actually refers to normality.. I have one more Q for you though. I'm now...

    easy regression Q's

    Actually my main question is, does the multiple regression in SPSS do the third bit of my analysis? Namely, these: +the relationship between A and G whilst controlling for B,C,D,E, and F +relationship between B and G whilst controlling for A,C,D,E, and F +relationship between C and G whilst...

    easy regression Q's

    I have 7 variables. 5 continuous variables: A,B,C,D,E. (These are my "IV" or confounding variable depending on the scenario. Will explain below.) 1 categorical variable, F. (This will only be used as a confound.) 1 continuous variable, G. This is my "DV." I am basically after three separate...

    ? about using categorical variables in correlations

    Can I use categorical and continuous variables as control variables in a partial correlation which is looking for the relationship between categorical and continuous variables? Can I use categorical variables as control variables in a partial correlation which is looking for the relationship...

    Which test to use?

    Also, on the results of the Logistic REgression, some variables have weird results on the AOR. For example, no upper limit; or huge Exp(B) or CI results such as 1,109E+15 or 59.535. Why?

    Which test to use?

    What I want to have is this: The effect of 1 continuous variable ("fixed factor"?) on a categorical DV controlling for 1 categorical variable (covariate) and 4 continuous variables (covariate). I can also work with the continuous variables transformed into categorical variables. Isn't this...

    Binary Logistic Regression Questions

    The reason why I differentiate between fixed factor and covariate is just interest. I'm interested in the effect of the fixed factor on the DV whereas I'm not interested on the effect of the covariates on the DV. I thought I could name these as such b/c in ANCOVA SPSS lets you differentiate...

    Binary Logistic Regression Questions

    I just realized I made a mistake in writing this out. What I meant to say was, my IV of interest is the fixed factor, in section C. I also have 4 other IV's (covariates) (sections B and D) that I am not interested in. I'm merely trying to control their effect on the DV. Does this answer your Q?
