April 12, 2010:
Multivariate Methods
Instructors: Nels Johnson and Matt Williams

The goal of this talk is to familiarize those in attendance with some common multivariate methods, such as principal component analysis, factor analysis, Hotelling's T-squared, etc. We'll try to motivate each method by identifying problems where it could be used, what kinds of assumptions are made, what kinds of interpretations they lead to, and some pros and cons of the method. We want this talk to be accessible; however a basic level of understanding of statistics and matrix algebra will be very helpful to all those in attendance.

LISA also provides:
Free statistical collaboration and consulting
Free daily Walk-in Consulting Service is available from 12-2pm in 401 Hutcheson Hall.
