Solved – Should I use MANOVA, ANOVA for Regression


I'm currently developing a research proposal and I'm looking at the variables values orientation and environment as determinants of pro-environmental behavior. Is it right to use ANOVA or MANOVA? All variables are continuous in nature. Further, I want to see each independent variables' relationship with the dependent variable and the interaction among them.

It sounds more like a multiple regression question.

All three of MANOVA, ANOVA, and regression fit into the heading of the general linear model. ANOVA is a special case of the linear model where you have categorical predictor variables. Since you have continuous predictor variables you would model them as

DV~ X1 + X2 + X3

Hope this helps.
