Using Multivariate Statistics provides practical guidelines for conducting numerous types of multivariate statistical analyses. It gives syntax and output for accomplishing many analyses through the most recent releases of SAS, SPSS, and SYSTAT, some not available in software manuals. The book maintains its practical approach, still focusing on the benefits and limitations of applications of a technique to a data set — when, why, and how to do it. Overall, it provides advanced students with a timely and comprehensive introduction to today's most commonly encountered statistical and multivariate techniques, while assuming only a limited knowledge of higher-level mathematics.
Multivariate statistics are increasingly popular statistical techniques for analyzing complicated data. This revised textbook tells students how to do an analysis--how to set it up and how to interpret results. A floppy disk is available. Annotation c. Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
