I am doing a study of the relationship between two items say A and B. The data consists of information printed on the annual reports from say 2000 - 2010 (10 years). For each item, i.e. A and B there are sub variables. Item A has 3 variables with 9 indicators and item B has 1 variable with 2 indicators.
The data for item A are in words. I used content analysis to compute the number of times each indicator was mentioned in each report for each year. For the item B, the data are in percentages so i have 2 different percentage values for each year (10 years).
I want to find the relationship (positive, negative or neutral) between these items with item A as my independent variable and item B my dependent variable. How do I go about this? I have been told to use SPSS, but I don't know what method I should use.
How should I go about my analysis to determine the relationship between these two items?
