1. ### Which statistical test I have to use for pre/post test?

Dear readers, I am wirting my thesis and I would like to test the effects of an mindfulness Intervention (independent variable) on reducing depressive, anxiety and stress symptoms (3 dependent variables). I have a pre and post-test for this and I would also like to include a control group...
2. ### Regression Analysis

Hello, It would be great if somebody can help me with this: Is it correct to conduct factor analysis on data source (A) and then run a simple regression analysis with derived factor from factor analysis as independent variable and a item from the same data source (A) as dependent variable...
3. ### Question concerning an "unusual" research design

Hey everyone, I have a question concerning a between group research-design and I wonder if it is very wise since I never came across a similar design (the provided example is of course fictional). Basically, i want to randomly assign participants into 4 groups (one control condition). For...
4. ### Variance of parts equal to variance of whole?

Good morning, I ran a hierarchical regression to test if variables A and B (established in the literature) are mediated by variable C (my research question) when predicting overall performance in a university unit. Block 1 was variables A and B using enter method. Block 2 included variable C...
5. ### Using a kurtosis statistic as a dependent variable

Hi everyone, I am working on a research project in public policy and I am testing kurtosis for on the year-to-year budget changes (as %) in different policy areas. In the literature we know there will more than likely be L-kurtosis so I want to take it one step further. I would like to...
6. ### Dependent variable in regression model - sum of factors?

I got across below article due to one of our student used it for the brand loyalty measure. http://www.palgrave-journals.com/jt/journal/v15/n4/full/5750044a.html I have a hard time to understand what is the dependent variable in this regression model - I did not find it explicitly mentioned...
7. ### Categorical data tested for several factors: which test should I use?

Hi guys, I'm currently doing a research project as part of my internship on mangrove damage along a river as a consequence of a major flood event. Shoreline was analysed for 1 meter sections. For each section my data comprises of the categorical categories mortality (yes/no) and certain...
8. ### Two IV's (Nominal, both multi-level), One DV (Interval). What do I run????

Help needed, I am trying to escape ABD hell. I am only a couple of statistical procedures away from slaying the dissertation beast and have hit a wall. I am needing a statistical procedure that would allow me to compare the means of the number of sessions (DV) per adult attachment style (IV...
9. ### Dependance between categorical variables in a whole population

Hello, I have a population of 507 documents (which represent the entire phenomena studied at a give time period) from which a series of variables -most of which are nominal- where extracted. The end goal was to describe said phenomena and establish the possibility that the outcome is...
10. ### Estimating parameter from conditionals of non-independent data

The context of this problem is the estimation of the distribution of a parameter v given sets of data A and B, where A and B are not independent. Suppose I know P(v | A) and P(v | B). Both of these distributions are definitely not normal (the answer should not make any assumptions about the...

My research study proposal title is: "Acute effects of aerobic exercise compared with standard medicinal treatments on the dysregulation of the HPA axis in women with post partum depression" So basically I'm looking at exercise versus medication as a treatment for postpartum depression. I...
12. ### Multivariate analysis with dependent variables and replicates

Dear All, I have been stuck in this issue for 2nd day now. I have a dataset of 13 depended variables (consequitive (not repeated!) measurment ("profiles" from one batch of product) and there are 3 batches (replicates) and within each batch there are 10 containers. So I am dealing with...
