    Default data from both mother and father of each child

    Hi

    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

    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)
