# Help with statistics! What tests do I use?! watch

1. Hi,
For my dissertation I am looking to investigate how area of residence affects locus of control scores and mental well-being scores. Area of residence is defined by percentage of deprivation. I'm basically asking what statistical test (that can be run on IBM SPSS) to use to see how all these variables interact!
Hope someone can help!

3. Haha I was thinking I'd come here tell you to use Normal/binomial/poisson distribution, but I have no idea xd.
What's this you're doing? University statistics? Doesn't look like S1 or S2 in a levels xd

You can run two correlations between deprivation and mental well-being, and deprivation and locus of control. You need to be bit more clear about what your design is though, im not sure if your comparing people groups of people who live in different areas, which would require a different test! I don't understand why you wouldn't use the income of a person to measure deprivation (although I guess you'd have to take into account whether people had children or not).
