data from both mother and father of each child
If you are going to compare two groups (parents of autistic children and parents of normal control group) on a test, which has been completed by both mother of father of each child,
do you use 2 (groups – autistic vs normal/between subjects variable) x 2 (parents – mother vs fathers/ within subjects variable) ANOVA ?
OR do you use 2 (groups – autistic vs normal/between subjects variable) x 2 (parents – mother vs fathers/ between subjects variable) ANOVA?
Do you think the mother group and the father group are independent? Or do you think mother-father pairs are related and therefore the parent variable is a within subjects not a between subjects variable?
I appreciate if anyone can answer my question.
Thanks in advance
Re: data from both mother and father of each child
As far as I know, it is required to be known what kind of test you are going to apply.
I hope the below websites would be usefull.
Between-Subjects Variable Between-Subjects Variable
Within-Subjects Variable Within-Subjects Variable (1 of 2)
