I am trying to figure out if there exists a relation between the region someone lives in and their ranking of a website. The region variable is categorical, dependent, and spans 11 levels such as the Mountainous regions, Pacific Northwest, etc.
My ordinal independent variable is numbered from 1-9, with 9 being completely satisfied with the website, and 1 being completely dissatisfied.
The problem I am having here is that I am not sure which test to use with the ordinal independent variable. I would normally use the ANOVA but from my understanding I don't have an interval dependent variable here. Does anyone have any thoughts? Thanks!
