What kind of stats do I use for longitudinal survey?
Hi, I am doing a longitudinal survey (I think). The first survey asks questions-yes, no, or chose an option.
Then after the participant completes the survey, they will read two articles on the topic.
The second survey will ask questions to determine if the articles have changed their attitudes and perception about the topic.
-they will not be initially told what the topic is and will only have one month to complete both surveys. This is to avoid bias in the answers.
My question is: what kind of statistics do I use to compare the first survey to the second? Also, participants are placed into categories of occupations. I think this falls into qualitative-discreet, but please correct me if I'm wrong.
Thanks, any pointing in the right direction will help me get started, then, I can get it done myself. I'm not looking for anyone to do my work for me or tell me how to do it -just need to know what type of statistical measures I'll be needing, I can take it from there.
