I have four questions representing one variable called work family conflict. They are all ordinal. And I added all the items and made it one variable.
After adding them up, I got code ranging from 1 to 16. Now 16 means high conflict and 1 means low. I have to to run the regression, how can I do it. Work family conflict is independent variable and my dependent variable is self reported health which is a likert scale.
- Should I recode and categorized it to high, medium and low and run the ordinal regression?
- Or can I run the ordinal regression without categorizing?
- Is it right to run the ordinal regression when dependent variable has likert scale?
