Multivariate methods

Use multivariate analyses to evaluate relationships among variables from many different perspectives. Perform multivariate tests of means, or fit multivariate regression and MANOVA models. Explore relationships between two sets of variables, such as aptitude measurements and achievement measurements, using canonical correlation. Examine the number and structure of latent concepts underlying a set of variables using exploratory factor analysis. Or use principal component analysis to find underlying structure or to reduce the number of variables used in a subsequent analysis. Discover groupings of observations in your data using cluster analysis. If you have known groups in your data, describe differences between them using discriminant analysis. And much more.
