comment Is Tomari-Te a valid type of Okinawan (Ryukyu) Kempo?
By the way, this is certainly not to say that Dillman's claims are genuine; there is a considerable controversy surrounding Dillman. I'm personally wary of anyone who claims to be a 10th dan in a traditional style without having a supported lineage. (Contrast with, for example, Meitatsu Yagi, who has one degree of separation from Chojun Miyagi.)

comment Logistic regression versus t-test, which is better for this comparative-descriptive study?
A fair point, and my apologies to John. I agree with your comment, and sense that this is the case for the original poster (i.e., I don't believe his intention is to perform a test for each individual scale item).

comment Logistic regression versus t-test, which is better for this comparative-descriptive study?
I assume those certain circumstances are those that you speak of above (i.e., when there are 10 or more levels). This is arbitrary and nonsensical. Why, when there are more scale points, should we be fine to treat the variable as interval than when the theoretical distances between the scale points are greater? From a psychometric perspective, there is plenty of evidence in favour of treating the scale points of a Likert scale as interval level data, and not only because "lots of people do it". A good start would be reading Rensis Likert's original (1935) article.

comment Estimated Marginal Means or means from descriptives?
Yes, normally only the raw means and standard deviations are reported as descriptive statistics. The question of when/where to report them is stylistic; I personally would report the significance of the effect, then describe the pattern of the effect by referring to the cell means (or in the case of a nonsignificant interaction, just state that the Ms and SDs are displayed in Table X).

Because I'm new here... does that count?

comment setAlignmentY not centering JLabel in BorderLayout
Thanks for the direction, that was a very helpful read, and you're right, painful! I resolved the issue using vertical glue, and learned a few handy tricks along the way.

Is there a way to keep the BoxLayout, with the components that are added to the BoxLayout vertically centered in the center panel of the BorderLayout?
