st: discriminant function analysis
Does anyone know if it is possible to perform the following analysis on
I have a set of 35 fossils, from known taxonomic groups (1,2,3). There
are five measurements per fossil. I then have a single newly discovered
fossil, and want to find out how it will be classified based on these
I wanted to use discriminant function analysis, but I'm not sure if a)
that is the right approach, and b) how I can do it using the command
-discrim-, which requires that the grouping variable be only 0/1, instead
of the three groups I have defined a priori.
Thanks for any help you might offer.
