    need help for senior thesis/ NCHA data




    I am doing a senior thesis. I will be using secondary data from the NCHA.
    I want to see if there are gender differences in abusive relationships.
    the three types of abuse 3 NCHA asks about are emotional, physical and sexual
    I will do research on the relationships because that has to be in there but, statistically, i don't know what to do!! I was thinking of doing a chi square, but that doesn't show a relationship and the sample size is like 900... I want to use elementary statistics because I am no expert.

    I will obviously be controlling gender.

    I don't know what some confounding variables would be.

    The NCHA is self reported
    the % that are in the report are only for male/female doesn't account for transgender.

    I have never done a project like this!! if someone can help me... I would greatly appreciate it!!!!!!

    out of curiosity, what's the NCHA?
    The mathematical explanation of a statistical procedure is really just pseudo-code, which we can make operational by translating it into real computer code. --B. Klemens
