Graphical Examination
– Histogram and The Normal Curve
– Stem and Leaf Diagram
– Scatter Plot

Missing data:
– Systematic (affected by researcher or respondent)
– Random (occurs naturally)
Researcher’s concern = to identify the patterns and relationships underlying the missing data.

Outlier = distinctively different data (can be identified by box plot), probably caused by:
– Procedural error
– Extraordinary event

Multivariate testing assumptions:
– Normality (e.g. normal probability plot)
– Linearity
– Homoscedascity
– Non correlated errors

Data can be transformed, dummy variable can be created. Multicollinearity (http://www.nd.edu/~rwilliam/stats2/l11.pdf) should be avoided.

The third class of this term has been for us to refresh our memory (if there was any, hahaha…) about basic definitions on multivariate analysis previously learnt in mathematics (matrix algebra – vector, matrix, distance, inverse, singularity) and statistics (variance, covariance, corelation, t-test, hotelling).

Types of multivariate techniques:
1. Dependence Techniques
2. Interdependence Techniques

= a variable or set of variables is identified as the dependent variable to be predicted or explained by other variables known as independent variables
• Multiple Regression
• Multiple Discriminant Analysis
• Logit/Logistic Regression
• Multivariate Analysis of Variance (MANOVA) and Covariance
• Conjoint Analysis
• Canonical Correlation
• Structural Equations Modeling (SEM)

= involve the simultaneous analysis of all variables in the set, without distinction between dependent variables and independent variables
• Principal Components and Common Factor Analysis
• Cluster Analysis
• Multidimensional Scaling (perceptual mapping)
• Correspondence Analysis

1. What type of relationship is being examined – dependence or interdependence?
2. Dependence relationship: How many variables are being predicted?
3. Interdependence relationship: Are you examining relationships between variables, respondents, or objects?

Multivariate Data Analysis
= all statistical methods that simultaneously analyze multiple measurements on each indlvidual or object under investigation.

Basic Concepts:
• The Variate
• Measurement scales (Nonmetric, Metric)
• Multivariate Measurement
• Measurement Error
• Types of Techniques

The variate is a linear combination of variables with empirically determined weights. Weights are determined to best achieve the objective of the specific multivariate technique.

In addressing measurement error, researchers evaluate two important characteristics of measurement:
• Validity =the degree to which a measure accurately represents what it is supposed to
• Reliability =the degree to which the observed variable measures the “true” value and is thus error free
