Offering the latest teaching and practice of applied multivariate statistics, this text is perfect for students who need an applied introduction to the subject. Lattin, Green, and Carroll have created a text that speaks to the needs of applied students who have advanced beyond the beginning level, but are not yet advanced statistics majors. Their text accomplishes this through a three-part structure. First, the authors begin each major topic by developing students' statistical intuition through geometric presentation. Then, they providing illustrative examples for support. Finally, for those courses where it will be valuable, they describe relevant mathematical underpinnings with matrix algebra.
