    Smile [SPSS - Hypothesis testing] Controlling for a variable. ANCOVA?


    I am using open data from New York City's yellow cabs and the in 2013 introduced citibikes (bikesharing service) to see if the introduction of the citibike led to a decrease in business for the yellow cabs. Additionally, I would like to control for the weather.

    I have weather information (mm of rain, snowfall, windspeed etc) and the frequency of cab & bike rides per day.

    Currently, I am having trouble with choosing an appropriate test for this purpose. I read about the ANCOVA, but since I have only elementary knowledge of statistics, I find it hard to assess whether this would be suitable. Any input would be greatly appreciated!

    Kind regards
