    Relationship between 2 variables & 1 dependant




    Hi all,

    My wife is busy with an assignment that is even giving me grey hair. She needs to determine the relationships between 2 variables and 1 dependent. The dependent is "locus of control" and the 2 variables is stress and well being.

    We need to determine the relationships of the 2 variables as a function of locus of control. Can anyone push us in the right direction?

    Hello!
    To provide you with a plausible reply, please tell about the nature of "locus of control" -- how do you measure it? Is it on a likert scale or what?

    Also how are stress and well-being defined. What is the sample size?

    Re: Relationship between 2 variables & 1 dependant

    do you mean in terms of something like a regression equation where-

    y(locus of control)= X (intercept) + X1 (stress) + X2 (Well-being) + X1*X2 (stress*well-being) + Error

    ?

    if those variables are composite factors for some instrument, you just treat them like continuous variables in a regression.

    To add to the questions, do you have access to any statistical software?

    We need to determine the relationships of the 2 variables as a function of locus of control.
    This sems to indicate that LoC is the independent variable, not the dependent variable...
    => 2 bivariate analyses, and/or
    => MANOVA, with LoC as either interval scaled predictor, or as a grouping variable.

    Re: Relationship between 2 variables & 1 dependant

    Good day all,

    Thank you for the feedback and I'll try and answer the questions if I can.

    @kiton & hlsmith, it looks as follows:

    Locus of Control is measured from 1 - 6
    1 - Completely Internal
    3 - Less Internal
    4 - Less External
    6 - Completely External

    Stress is measured from 1 - 20
    1 - Low Stress
    20 - High Stress

    Well-being is measured from 1 - 10
    1 - Low well-being
    10 - High well-being

    So it looks as follows:

    Members_______________LOC_____________Stress____________Well-being
    1_____________________3_______________4_________________10
    2_____________________1_______________20________________2
    3_____________________6_______________15________________7
    4_____________________2_______________19________________5
    5_____________________5_______________5_________________8
    6_____________________1_______________14________________9
    7_____________________6_______________10________________4
    8_____________________3_______________15________________1

    What is the relationship of stress and well-being as factors of LOC?

    2_____________________1_______________20________________2
    3_____________________6_______________15________________7

    5_____________________5_______________5_________________8
    6_____________________1_______________14________________9
    7_____________________6_______________10________________4
    8_____________________3_______________15________________1
    So then sample size is n=8? Or isn't it?
    What is the relationship of stress and well-being as factors of LOC?
    I am not sure whether I understand what that question means. Maybe they ask whether stress and/or wellbeing can predict degree of internal (or external) LoC?
