    Post Voter Engagement Methodology




    I need some help with measuring voter engagement among native and naturalized citizens depending on their respective race.

    dependent variable/s: voter engagement
    - I have a dataset that gives the number of reported voters in both native and naturalized groups in the U.S.

    independent variable (dummy maybe?): race
    - The same dataset divides native and naturalized voters by 4 different races

    Statistical test: regression?

    Questions:
    1. Is is possible to have two dependent variables such as "native" and "naturalized" citizens?
    2. What kind of test would I have to perform to find out the relationship between race and voter engagement and compare it between both groups of citizens?
    3. Should race be a dummy variable?

    Thanks!

    You'll need the number of non-voters as well, I suppose.
    Statistical test: regression?
    Logistic regression maybe.

    Do you mean two independent variables? You only
    need one variable.
    2. What kind of test would I have to perform to find out the relationship between race and voter engagement and compare it between both groups of citizens?
    Either logistic regression with group and race as categorical
    predicotrs, or maybe simply a Mantel-Haenszel test (analysis
    of the association between group and voting, with race
    categories as strata).

    With kind regards
