    Exclamation What statistical analysis tests to use for these 3 questions




    1. Examining the effects of being a victim of violence (categorical yes/no) on hostile attribution scores (continuous variable)?

    2. Examining the effects of victimization frequency (continuous variable) on hostile attribution scores?

    3. Examining the effects of victimization severity (2 levels: direct and indirect victimzation) on hostile attribution scores?

    The reason I am struggling is that my DV (hostile attribution scores) are split into relational and instrumental scores.

    just curious if you have tried to run an ANOVA for question one?

    And what do you mean that your dependent variable is split into two scores?

    Yeah, what do you mean by "relational and instrumental scores?


    Would you want to examine the effects of all three or any combination of the IVs on the DV at the same time?

    By relational and instrumental scores, do you mean they are two sub-scales of hostile attribution?
    If so, it depends on your hypothesis as to how you treat them.
