Multivariate Analysis

Dr. Marvin Powell


The multivariate analysis seminar covers statistical approaches that involve the observation of more than one outcome variable at a time and dimension reduction/scale development. This seminar includes asynchronous materials to help you prepare for step-by-step statistical demonstrations in the synchronous session.
