A Practical Handbook for Multivariate Methods is invaluable for anyone approaching multivariate statistics. All of the main multivariate techniques used in:
and many other fields are presented in a clear manner which does not assume or require a mathematical background.
The authors' aim is to give you confidence in the use of multivariate methods so that you can clearly explain why you have chosen a particular method. The book is richly illustrated, showing how your results can be displayed in both publications and presentations. For each method, an introductory section describes the method of calculation and the type of data it is designed for. This is followed by a series of carefully selected examples from published papers covering a wide range of disciplines. You will find examples from fields you are familiar with. The data sets used are available from this website
, allowing you to repeat the analyses and explore the various approaches.
