Subject: What is the best way to analyze Likert type items?
Content-Type: text/plain; charset="iso-8859-1"
Can someone give me pointers on how to best analyze data that is in
Likert form (strongly agree, agree, etc). I have a 5 Likert type
questions associated with the variables in my study and there are a
total of 30 Likert questions. Moreovoer, I also have other variables in
my study that are either categorical or binary.
Besides putting descriptive statistics in my report, what other
inferential statistics would be appropriate to find relationships
between the Likert items and my other variables.
Any suggestion would be appreciated.
