    Which statistical test to use?




    Hi,

    My Chinese friend and I are trying to answer the following question: What are the mean weasel body weight per habitat and age class, for males and females, in the different seasons?

    We are still wondering which statistical test would be most appropriate. Crosstabs (Chi-square), t-test, etc.?

    Do you know which statistical test to use?

    This could be structured a number of ways. A 4-way ANOVA, or 3-way repeated measures ANOVA would work.

    As a Caucasion psychologist, I'd reply that an ANOVA or regression of some sort would make sense since you have a continuous dependent variable and multiple categorical independent variables.
