Subject: Re: Can I use time and gender as covariates in Ancova?
Content-Type: text/plain; charset=us-ascii
Do the respondents participate in each of the three waves? Or are there
3 non-overlapping groups of respondents? or what?
The groups are overlappin, the same users participate in all three waves (N
gender would usually be treated as a factor (independent variable)
rather than as a covariate.
I know, but would rather see if 5 different groups of social networking
sites user, sporadics, lurker, socializers, debaters and advanced differ in
their social capital., using age and gender as covariates
How do you measure age?
5 different categoriers from 15 to 75 years
What are your other independent? what are their levels of measurement?
The indpendent are the 5 clusters of users (found by cluster analysis)
sporadics, lurker, socializers, debaters and advanced
What is/are your dependent variable(s)? How measured?
I am using different measures on social captial. 4 and 5-point Likert scales
are used. The different items in each measure are added togheter.
How many respondents do you have?
N=391, all particpate in all 3 time waves.
