Description

Starting from simple hypothesis testing and then moving towards model-building, this valuable book takes readers through the basics of multivariate analysis including: which tests to use on which data; how to run analyses in SPSS for Windows and GLIM4; how to interpret results; and how to report and present the reports appropriately. Using a unified conceptual framework (based around the Generalized Linear Model) the authors explain the commonalities and relationships between methods that include both the analysis of categorical and continuous data.
