The data was collected using a logarithmic scale: scores (explanatory variable) are collected with values from 0-5. A score of 3 is 10x the value of a score of 2.
I wasn't sure if using either the log scale (0-5) or a "linearalized" scale (0-100000), when performing corr. or ANOVA, was correct, so I tried both. Unsurprisingly, the scale I choose affects whether correlations are found or not, and whether variances are found or not.
Which scale should I use in my analysis? Or what questions do I need to answer to help me decide which scale I should use in my analysis?
Thanks very much!
