Unsure what SPSS test to run--comparing means.


New Member
I am a SPSS beginner. My hypothesis is "Women who score high on self-esteem will score low on upward comparison than women who score high on upward comparison." I have all the data cleaned up and the total scores found for all my scales, I am just unsure what SPSS analysis I should run. Is it simply a bivariate correlation?

As the other answer suggests, maybe look at the hypotheses for your study. I would add it is also worth reading the measures section of your study. What types of variables are your two variables. What question are you trying to answer/what is your hypothesis. The consideration of your variable types and your hypotheses will tell you if a correlation or some other analysis is appropriate.
