I am new here. A little background, I am a Masters of Forensic Science student with a little statistics knowledge. I am currently working on my thesis and am not sure which tests to use to test my data.

In my first set of data I have two time frames with data which contains 8 columns of data. I have run a 2x8 chi squared that shows their is significance at p<.001. I am specifically interested in one of the outcomes and would like to test if it has changed significantly in regards to the other 7 columns and the total of all columns. Not sure how to proceed.

Secondly I have several years of data that are each associated with the 8 columns mentioned previously, plus data that shows 5 possible outcomes from the 8 columns. I would like to see if there is any correlation between one column and the 5 outcomes.

I hope this makes sense. Can anyone suggest what tests would be adequate? I have a general idea, but I am not positive.

Thanks
