This sounds like a question you might want to answer using social network analyses programs such as sienna.Lisan19hotmail.c92 wrote: RQ1: Do children from a particulair ethnic group have more friendships with children from the same ethnic group or does the ethnic group not matter in choices of friendships?
For this RQ, I used a questionnaire with 250 learners from 7 different ethnic groups. In the questionnaire I asked who their friends from the class where and I noted the ethnic group from each friend.
if your groups are much different in size, you can use a kruskall wallis test to see if there are differences at all, and then use mann-whitney u test for paired comparisons.For this RQ, I used a questionnaire with 250 learners from 7 different ethnic groups. The questionnaire consisted of 40 statements. Each statement could be answered with: not nice, nice, very nice. The 40 statements consisted of three underlying factors (appeared from the factor analysis).
There is lots of literature about this question (referred to as selection in literature).Lisan19hotmail.c92 wrote:Thanks for answering my questions! I have two more questions:
- Is it not better to do a Regression for RQ1?
if you have 7 groups, you need planned comparisons. For instance, I can imagine that you might not be interested in all differences between all groups. You do pairwise comparisons between all your groups of interest. Just a note, if you would use anova with post-hoc comparisons, you would also have 21 comparisons.- I don't see where I can do a Mann Whitney U test for more than 2 groups (I have 7 different ethnic groups). Do you know where I can find it or isn't that possible?
