HELP: Analysing data using correlations/partial correlations

Postby Aisoreal » Mon Feb 17, 2014 3:14 pm

Hi guys,

So, I'm a newbie here. :)
I'm trying to solve an assignment task that requires me to analyse how different dimensions of culture are related to one another. There are more than five different dimensions.
I know that I'm supposed to use correlations to analyse the data, but it's also recommended to use partial correlations to remove the influence of one controlled variable over other variables.

Let's say, I have 10 different dimensions. So, to run partial correlations, I just need to pick one variable as the controlled variable, and then put the other 9 as the other variables right? Then I just repeat the same steps for each variable until all of them has been put as the controlled.

Is this the correct way of doing it? Or did I do it wrong and there is a much simpler and more efficient way of doing it? Thanks!
