regression analysis

hi. i need advise on how to do regression analysis with a discrete dependent variable and a number of dichotomous and continuous independent variables. What approach/statistical analysis should I do? Do I perform a single multiple regression model? Is there a better alternative to this?

Thank you.

You would dummy code the variables. If you have 2 categories you'll have one dummy variable. If you have 4 categories you'll have 3 dummy variables (J-1). That should get you started in your search.

As far as single or multiple this really depends on your research question which you haven't given.

Can you describe your variables more? You mentioned the outcome is discrete. Knowing more about it could help us recommend more appropriate methods.
