Hi all. I am working on my master thesis and are struggling with my correlation analysis.
My plan for the statistics from my survey are:
PCA and factor analysis
In my assumptions in correlation analysis I have problems with the fitting of the likert scale data to find linearity among other things. Is it better to use the factor scores from factor analysis of my independent variables or should I use my likert scale ratings, which is not continuous?
Hi, Sorry, I'm not clear what you mean by " I have problems with the fitting of the likert scale data to find linearity among other things". Can you say more about this? What questions are you trying to answer with your correlation analysis? Thanks, Phil
