I am needing some quick help. I have searched and searched and can't find a solution. I have some dependent variables that are a number of times a student has gotten into trouble at school. About 1/2 of the students have 0(none) and then the other 1/2 range from 1 to over 30. There are very few students in the upper limits so when I put them into intervals, I have some very large cell counts and then some that are too small. I don't want to change the interval spread because I will lose meaning (there is a lot of difference in interpretation of why a child is in trouble 1-5 times versus 20 times.) Anyway, this data is obviously skewed because of this problem. Can I treat some of the data as outliers? If so, can you explain what to do? I am using some ANOVA and some regression. If you need more info, just ask and hopefully I can explain. THANK YOU!!!!
