Multivariate data typically consist of many records, each with readings on two or more variables, with or without an “outcome” variable of interest. This course covers the theoretical foundations of multivariate statistics including multivariate data, common distributions and discriminant analysis. Procedures covered in the course include multivariate analysis of variance (MANOVA), principal components, factor analysis and classification.
