I have a series of categorical variables I have, up until now, been undertaking correlation analysis with. The bulb has now lit up and I'm realising that I've used completely the wrong analysis if I want to explore the associations between the collected variables. I'm assuming I'd need to scrap everything I've written up to this point and start again?
If I were to scrap everything what would be the best course of action for exploring the association between variables such as pest control actions, types of pests experienced, pest control preferences and views of both private and authority run pest control services alongside the standard demographic variables of ethnicity, gender, region, income and housing tenure?
I have searched the site, but being a complete newbie to stats and having a mentor who didn't flag the issue I'm finding myself getting confused.
