Independent and Dependent Variables
Hello, I'm supposed to define the independent and dependent variables of a research study.
Objectives of the Study: Analyzing ethnic and racial disparities in mental health service access and use at different poverty levels.
Methods: Comparing demographic and clinical data of minority groups living in low and high-income areas and later compared to caucasians living in poverty areas.
I just wanted to double-check if I identified the variables correctly:
Independent Variable: Utilization of mental health services
Dependent Variable: Poverty levels/residential area (high/low income), ethnic group
