I am doing a Research Project for my Master degree course.

One of my Research Questions in my Project is:

How do employees in <”name of country”> perceive the concept of <”an upcoming concept related to how employees work”> ?

I need to take a survey in order to answer the above question. I have already prepared the questions but still not started the surveying part till now.

I was told by my professor that I need to do statistical analysis as well.

I have never taken any statistical class and have no experience or proper knowledge about how to go about statistical analysis.

After doing bit of research, I was able to find some information about concepts like dependent and independent variables, types of variables(categorical, continuous), etc.

I also found that the statistical tests which I can do depend on the nature of my variables…that is most of the variables in my case are categorical…

After considering the variables, my survey questions and my research questions, I was able to come up with below-

Categories = No of options for the person to select from

Independent variables (Employee’s Demographic) –

Gender (2 Categories)

Age Range (6 Categories)

Relationship/martial status(3 Categories)

Have Children ?(2 Categories)

Independent variables (Employee’s Work related attributes) –

Type of Employer(Govt, Non-Govt, etc.) – (3 Categories)

No of hours worked per week (5 Categories)

Work in shifts ? (3 Categories)

Work in essential services ?(3 Categories)

Work as a manager? (3 Categories)

Dependent variables(New Concept related attributes)-

Like the concept ?( 3 Categories)

Advantages(4 Categories)

Disadvantages(5 Categories)

3 additional questions each with a 5 point likert scale.

Considering that I have conducted the survey and have all of my responses.

In this case, can anyone tell me how can I systematically go about carrying out a statistical analysis for the above ? What all statistical tests can I do in my case ?

I would really appreciate your guidance as I am a complete newbie w.r.t statistics analysis. Any inputs or if any resources you can point me to…I would be really grateful..

Thanks,
