Hey guys, I wanna say right off the bat that I'm a beginner at using R.
I am having trouble figuring out which statistical tests/models to use for my two hypotheses. Do I use binary response variable models, proportional models.. etc.
My two hypotheses:
#1: Comparing the presence of an observer (a categorical variable consisting of either Approaching/Near, Near or On Top of Cage) to the presence of aggressive behavior (again categorical variables consisting of Aggression, Freeze/Hide Behavior, Escape Behavior, Aggressive Vocalizations and Fear Vocalizations each as separate binary categories in my spreadsheet)
#2: Comparing the age of the monkey (continuous variable) to Freeze/Hide behavior, Aggressive Vocalizations and Fear Vocalizations (again binary categories/variables)
The response variables were treated as binary variables with either the behaviors being present or not.
Can anyone help me figure out what tests/models in R that I need to use. I don't need to know the specific program codes, I just need to know which tests/models would best work with my data.
Thanks in advanced!
