Hope the experts here can help me out with a question.
I have a database with several respondents providing data on multiple-choice questions. One of those questions is whether the respondents volunteer or not.
I got a request to perform a regression analysis to see whether the results of some of the other questions could be used to predict whether the responder is more or less likely to volunteer.
So it looks like both the independent and dependent variables are categorical in their nature, which brings me to my question.
Since both variables are categorical - would the regression analysis be really the best tool to use here? I suggested using t-test to compare the frequencies for each question between volunteers and non-volunteers - would that be a better option to see if any questions can "predict" volunteering?
Please let me know if any clarification is required.
Any advice is much appreciated!
