A person on ResearchGate asked the following question: How can I correlate ordinal variables (attitude Likert scale) with continuous ratio data (years of experience)? Currently, I am working on my dissertation which explores learning organisation characteristics at HEIs. One of the predictor demographic variables is the indication of the years of experience. Respondents were asked to fill in the gap the number of years. Should I categorise the responses instead? as for example: 1. from 1 to 4 years 2. from 4 to 10 and so on? or is there a better choice/analysis I could apply?
