The
statistical topics covered will include:
- Regression analysis
- Univariate and multivariate ANOVA and ANCOVA
- Discriminant analysis
- Logistic regression
- Canonical correlation analysis
- Principal components, factor analysis, LISREL models (CFA, SEMs)
- Cluster analysis and Multidimensional Scaling (time & interest permitting)
See the more detailed Course Outline for further information,
