    Unhappy Regression with summated scale help




    Hi all,
    I am having struggles with computing a (hierarchical) regression analysis for my data, and i have a feeling this is due to my variables. I have a feeling the problem is with my dependent variable - as it is basically a sum of the three categories per respondent. Is there any way that i can still use the information from this dependent variable in any way for a regression? For me the total score (as computed in the dependent variable) should reflect the ultimate answer to whether a company is a first choice employer.

    Here is the list of variables
    • Dependent variable "First choice employer"
      Per respondent, all three above mentioned categories added together
    • Independent variable 1 Content:
      a summated scale of 10 items, with answers varying from 1-5 (strongly disagree - strongly agree)
    • Independent variable 2 Culture
      a summated scale of 10 items, with answers varying from 1-5 (strongly disagree - strongly agree)
      Independent variable 3 Salary
    • a summated scale of 10 items, with answers varying from 1-5 (strongly disagree - strongly agree)

    I gladly appreciate your helP!

    Interesting. Running a regression where the DV is just a linear combination of the IVs doesn't really make sense, so I think we need to figure out how you got to this point. What is the actual goal of your research study?
