# Multivariate Data Analysis with SPSS

General info:

Experimental studies and research may result in complex data sets containing several related responses. For their analysis traditional univariate, one-variable at a time, statistical methods may not be adequate as the analysis may gain from a simultaneous examination of all relevant variables. With Multivariate Data Analysis correlation or association between variables can be taken into account, while modeling or analyzing several variables simultaneously. They provide the means for both describing and exploring data, aiming to extract the underlying patterns and structure. In the CEE/e-course ‘Multivariate Data Analysis with SPSS’ a range of multivariate techniques for analyzing correlated or associated variables are discussed and underlying principles are explained. Furthermore, the use of representative statistical software like SPSS is demonstrated and participants get the opportunity for hands-on experience using SPSS for multivariate data analysis.

The following topics will be treated:

• Introduction and Overview.
• Exploratory Data Analysis for Multivariate Data:
Correlations, Matrix Scatter Plots.
• Multivariate Analysis of Variance: MANOVA.
• Data Reduction: Principal Component Analysis and
Factor Analysis.
• Data Grouping: Discriminant Function Analysis and
Cluster Analysis.
• Interpretation and Presentation of the Results.

After successful completion of the course participants should be able to perform multivariate data analyses with SPSS independently.

 Documentation Will be handed out at the beginning of the course. Language The language of communication can be either Dutch or English, to be decided by mutual arrangement with the participants.
