## Multivariate Statistical Methods

##### A First Course

Multivariate statistics refer to an assortment of statistical methods that have been developed to handle situations in which multiple variables or measures are involved. Any analysis of more than two variables or measures can loosely be considered a multivariate statistical analysis. An introductory text for students learning multivariate statistical methods for the first time, this book keeps mathematical details to a minimum while conveying the basic principles. One of the principal strategies used throughout the book--in addition to the presentation of actual data analyses--is pointing out the analogy between a common univariate statistical technique and the corresponding multivariate method. Many computer examples--drawing on SAS software --are used as demonstrations. Throughout the book, the computer is used as an adjunct to the presentation of a multivariate statistical method in an empirically oriented approach. Basically, the model adopted in this book is to first present the theory of a multivariate statistical method along with the basic mathematical computations necessary for the analysis of data. Subsequently, a real world problem is discussed and an example data set is provided for analysis. Throughout the presentation and discussion of a method, many references are made to the computer, output are explained, and exercises and examples with real data are included.

## Advanced and Multivariate Statistical Methods

##### Practical Application and Interpretation

Ideal for non-math majors, Advanced and Multivariate Statistical Methods teaches students to interpret, present, and write up results for each statistical technique without overemphasizing advanced math. This highly applied approach covers the why, what, when and how of advanced and multivariate statistics in a way that is neither too technical nor too mathematical. Students also learn how to compute each technique using SPSS software. New to the Sixth Edition Instructor ancillaries are now available with the sixth edition. All SPSS directions and screenshots have been updated to Version 23 of the software. Student learning objectives have been added as a means for students to target their learning and for instructors to focus their instruction. Key words are reviewed and reinforced in the end of chapter material to ensure that students understand the vocabulary of advanced and multivariate statistics.

## Multivariate Statistical Methods

##### A Primer, Third Edition

Multivariate methods are now widely used in the quantitative sciences as well as in statistics because of the ready availability of computer packages for performing the calculations. While access to suitable computer software is essential to using multivariate methods, using the software still requires a working knowledge of these methods and how they can be used. Multivariate Statistical Methods: A Primer, Third Edition introduces these methods and provides a general overview of the techniques without overwhelming you with comprehensive details. This thoroughly revised, updated edition of a best-selling introductory text retains the author's trademark clear, concise style but includes a range of new material, new exercises, and supporting materials on the Web. New in the Third Edition: Fully updated references Additional examples and exercises from the social and environmental sciences A comparison of the various statistical software packages, including Stata, Statistica, SAS Minitab, and Genstat, particularly in terms of their ease of use by beginners In his efforts to produce a book that is as short as possible and that enables you to begin to use multivariate methods in an intelligent manner, the author has produced a succinct and handy reference. With updated information on multivariate analyses, new examples using the latest software, and updated references, this book provides a timely introduction to useful tools for statistical analysis.
