Is it really ok to treat Likert items as continuous? And can you just decide to combine Likert items to make a scale? Likert-type data is extremely common—and so are questions like these about how to analyze it appropriately.
In this training, you will learn how to make decisions about the analysis of these variables. We’ll specifically discuss the types of analyses that are appropriate for analyzing individual Likert items, reasonable assumptions to make when running these analyses, and methods that come in handy when combining Likert items into a scale.
Note: This training is an exclusive benefit to members of the Statistically Speaking Membership Program and part of the Stat’s Amore Trainings Series. Each Stat’s Amore Training is approximately 90 minutes long.
