Based on what I understand you to say/describe, and the case count, look into a nonparametric independence test
Sorry about this. I have updated the original post.
If it's alright, I have a follw-up question.. I have used the Mann Whitney Test and my results are statistically significant (p < 0.05). Given the Mann Whitney looks at medians rather than means, I am unsure how to report my results because I was originally examining differences in the mean score obtained on a measure between two groups. As such, all the data I entered into my variable reflected the average scored obtained by each participant on measure X rather one single score.
Would I report that the medians on the measure used differ significantly between my clinical and non-clinical groups; or, would I report that the mean scores obtained on the measure differed significantly between both groups? I guess I am just unsure how to report my results in terms of this detail (which I think is significant).
Thank you so much for any feedback.
