Which test to use?? Help :(

Postby totong » Wed Feb 04, 2015 6:25 pm

I don't know what test to use after reading so many articles online. Would really appreciate some help on the easiest test I can use!!

I have 2 groups for my independent variable (the number of respondents for each group is not equal):
One group visit parks more frequently and 1 group visit gardens more frequently

I want to test if the demographic characteristics (sex, age, race, citizenship, occupation) of those visiting these places are significantly different.

Help is very much appreciated. :)

(nominal, ordinal, scale).
