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, Carroll, and Green have created a text that speaks to the needs of applied students who have advanced beyond the beginning level, but are not advanced statistics majors. The text provides a three-part structure. First, the authors begin each major topic by developing students' statistical intuition through applications. Then, they providing illustrative examples for support. Finally, for those courses where it will be valuable, they describe relevant mathematical underpinnings with vectors and matrix algebra. Additionally, each chapter follows a standard format. This format begins by discussing a general set of research objectives, followed by illustrative examples of problems in different areas. Then it provides an explanation of how each method works, followed by a sample problem, application of the technique, and interpretation of results.
