When selecting a set of study variables, social work researchers frequently test correlations between the outcome variables (i.e., dependent variables) and theoretically relevant predictor variables (i.e., independent variables). In some instances, one or more of the predictor variables are uncorrelated with the outcome variable. This situation poses the question of whether researchers’ multiple regression analyses should exclude independent variables that are not significantly correlated with… CONTINUE READING
