Choosing the right Statistical Model to Examine Relationships between Variables

Which statistical model should we use when examining relationships between variables?

It first depends on the type of variables we chose to use for our model: categorical or quantitative.

I did some research on the web, and built here a table, summarizing the most appropriate statistical models on the basis of the type of explanatory/outcome variables we choose to include in our model. Hope you will find it useful!

* in case we decide to use Chi Square, we would first need to categorize the quantitative explanatory variable.
