my study is questionnaire based and is around social media usage among young adults and adults over 35. It is also centered around how anxiety levels impact social media usage in these demographics. My problem is that i have just hit a mental wall, i understand the concepts of D.V and I.V but for this research im not sure what they would be.

Help would be great here please! Thank you in advance.

IV - The Person you're asking the questions
DV - I assume their usage? Dependent on what you're measuring

effected usage, would that be considered a variable?
