A Primer of Multivariate Statistics by Richard J. Harris

By Richard J. Harris

Drawing upon greater than 30 years of expertise in operating with data, 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 recommendations with a style of latent variable methods. during the ebook there's a specialise in the significance of describing and checking out one's interpretations of the emergent variables which are produced by means of multivariate research. This variation keeps its conversational writing sort whereas targeting classical ideas. The booklet offers the reader a consider for why one should still reflect on diving into extra distinctive remedies of computer-modeling and latent-variable thoughts, resembling non-recursive course research, confirmatory issue research, and hierarchical linear modeling. in the course of the publication there's a specialise in the significance of describing and trying out one's interpretations of the emergent variables which are produced by way of multivariate research.

In a study that we'll examine in more detail in chapter 6, Harris, Harris, and Bochner (1982) described "Chris Martin" to 159 Australian psychology students as either a man or a woman in his or her late twenties who, among other things, was either overweight or of average weight and who either did or did not wear glasses. Each subject rated this stimulus person on 12 adjective pairs, from which 11 dependent variables were derived. A 2 x 2 x 2 multivariate analysis of variance was conducted to assess the effects of the 3 independent variables and their interactions on the means of the 11 dependent variables and the linear combinations thereof.

Therefore, the Scheffe procedure has the property that if and only if the overall F ratio is statistically significant can we find at least one statistically significant Scheffe-based specific comparison. This is not true of any other specific comparison procedure. 2 A Heuristic Survey of Statistical Techniques 21 among the group means that is attributable to that particular contrast. This "percentage of variance" interpretation is made possible by the fact that the sums of squares associated with any k - 1 independent contrasts among the means add to a sum identical to SSa, the sum of squares associated with the total variation among the k means.

Similarly, only very rarely are the effects of an experimental manipulation (high versus low anxiety, low versus high dosage level, and so on) confined to a single behavioral manifestation. Even when our theoretical orientation tells us that the effect of the manipulation should be on a single conceptual dependent variable, there are usually several imperfectly correlated operational definitions of (that is, means of measuring) that conceptual variable. For instance, learning can be measured by such things as percentage of correct responses, latency of response, and trials to criterion, and hunger can be measured by subjective report, strength of stomach contractions, hours because last consumption of food, and so forth.
