I'm very new to statistics and was hoping for some easy to digest infomation regarding my (probably easy) problem. I have a set of variables that have all been measured on a 5 point likert scale, and want to test if there is any corrolation between them (as one increases, does the other).

However, I am also wanting to account for some control variables (gender and one other yes/no question).

So basically, I have multiple sets of ordinal data I want to see if there is a correlation between while accounting for 2 control variables.

How would I go about doing this?

Thanks in advance
