I have two independent groups who travel with different modes. I want to compare the distance traveled (which is a continuous variable) by different modes for these two groups. How do I compare them in SPSS? My sample size is small: each group has only 32 observations.
Sorry, I am a newbie in stats. Here is the actual question. I collected travel distance and the choice of travel mode in two different locations.
There are 32 people in each location with 6 different modes. Each person can choose one mode and give the travel distance.
My query is, how should I compare to see if the travel distances of these two groups are significantly different?
If it were categorical data, I could use chi square, but does the t-test work here?
I believe the t-test is to compare two groups with one mean in each group, but I have 6 $\times$ 2 separate mean values (one for the each mode and two locations). I hope I have made it clear now.
