Basically I sent out a questionnaire which had a likert type scale measuring attitudes towards safety. There were 64 statements in all.

Respondents were grouped in to 5 categories depending on length of time employed in the industry.

I want to look at whether tenure can predict attitude towards safety.

I figure my DV is tenure and my IV's are the attitude scale scores.

I just cant fathom out which test I should be using. I looked at a 2 way ANOVA but then read on the net you couldn't use this for categorical data so I dismissed it. I know correlation and multiple regression arent right but now I am just totally lost and cant see the wood for the trees.

If anyone can help I would really appreciate it. I dont expect answers handed to me on a plate but I have been struggling with this for over two months and its making me ill. Im just not a stats person.

Thanks!
