By Richard J. Harris
Drawing upon greater than 30 years of expertise in operating with facts, Dr. Richard J. Harris has up to date A Primer of Multivariate facts to supply a version of stability among how-to and why. This vintage textual content covers multivariate options with a flavor of latent variable methods. through the e-book there's a concentrate on the significance of describing and checking out one's interpretations of the emergent variables which are produced via multivariate research. This variation keeps its conversational writing sort whereas concentrating on classical thoughts. The ebook supplies the reader a think for why one should still think of diving into extra certain remedies of computer-modeling and latent-variable ideas, equivalent to non-recursive course research, confirmatory issue research, and hierarchical linear modeling. through the e-book there's a concentrate on the significance of describing and checking out one's interpretations of the emergent variables which are produced via multivariate research.

Here, as is so often the case, common usage and logic clash. If we define multivariate techniques (as the present author prefers) as those applied when two or more variables are employed either as independent (predictor) or dependent (outcome) variables, then higher order Anova must certainly be included and possibly one-way Anova as well. However, Anova and Ancova involving only one control variable, and thus only bivariate regression, have traditionally not been included in treatments of multivariate statistics.
This operational definition of multivariate statistics resolves the paradox mentioned in the preceding paragraph that Anova is generally considered a univariate technique, despite its being a special case of multiple regression, which is commonly viewed as a multivariate technique. When the matrix formulae for a multiple regression analysis (MRA) are applied to a situation in which the predictor variables consist of k - 1 dichotomous groupmembership variables (where, for i = 1, 2, .... k - 1, ~ = 1 if the subject is a member of group i, 0 if he or she is not), and when these group-membership variables are uncorrelated (as they are when the same number of observations is obtained for each combination of levels of the independent variables), the matrix operations lead to relatively simple single-symbol expressions that are the familiar Anova computational formulae.
W. Norton's 1953 study) have shown this test to be very robust against violations of the normality and homogeneity of variance assumptions, with true Type I error rates differing very little from those obtained from the F distribution. This is true even when population variances differ by as much as a ratio of 9 or when the populations are as grossly nonnormal as the rectangular distribution. Much more detailed discussion of these and other matters involved in one-way Anova is available in a book by Winer (1971) or in his somewhat more readable 1962 edition.
