    dependent variable is between 0 to 10




    Hi everbody,
    I have a guestion, the dependent variable I use take the values between 0 to 10, in this case can I consider the dependent variable as a continous variable? and use a simple regression analysis? Would zeros be problem, if it is, do I need to use Tobit or something? Thank you very in advance for any help

    I have carried out a survey which aimed to measure trust in government, so people have given a score between 10 and 0 (according their trust level in government, 0 indicating no trust at all and 10 means absolute trust) Survey has been conducted with more than 500 participants, So I use trust score as dependent variable, as expected there are few zeros and tens and majority give score between 1 and 9, anyway using this score I want to know what determines trust, so on the right hand side there are variables like education, age, working for government or not, use of e-government etc.
    Thank You.

    Hello
    yes, your dependent variable is continuse, i think your intent about continuse is quntitative.
    but please attend , i think your some independent variables are ordinal and another are nominal ,
    like age, education, working for government or not, are nominal, so, you cant do regression,you should do Anova.
