By James P. Stevens

This best-selling textual content is written if you happen to use, instead of improve statistical equipment. Dr. Stevens makes a speciality of a conceptual figuring out of the cloth instead of on proving effects. worthwhile narrative and diverse examples increase realizing and a bankruptcy on matrix algebra serves as a assessment. Annotated printouts from SPSS and SAS point out what the numbers suggest and inspire interpretation of the implications. as well as demonstrating easy methods to use those programs, the writer stresses the significance of checking the knowledge, assessing the assumptions, and making sure sufficient pattern dimension via offering instructions in order that the implications should be generalized. The booklet is famous for its vast utilized insurance of MANOVA, its emphasis on statistical energy, and diverse routines together with solutions to half.

The new version features:
<UL> * New chapters on Hierarchical Linear Modeling (Ch. 15) and Structural Equation Modeling (Ch. 16)
* New workouts that function fresh magazine articles to illustrate the particular use of a number of regression (Ch. 3), MANOVA (Ch. 5), and repeated measures (Ch. thirteen)
* a brand new appendix at the research of correlated observations (Ch. 6)
* accelerated discussions on acquiring non-orthogonal contrasts in repeated measures designs with SPSS and the way to make the id of phone identity more uncomplicated in log linear research in four or five means designs
* up-to-date models of SPSS (15.0) and SAS (8.0) are used during the textual content and brought in bankruptcy 1
* A ebook site with information units and more.
Ideal for classes on multivariate records present in psychology, schooling, sociology, and company departments, the publication additionally appeals to practising researchers with very little education in multivariate tools. necessities comprise a direction on factorial ANOVA and covariance. operating wisdom of matrix algebra isn't assumed.

Although the rules are basic, they are important. For example, failing to end a statement in SAS with a semicolon, or using a variable name longer than eight characters, will cause the program to terminate. 2 show the structural similarity of the control line flow for different types of analyses. Notice in each case we start with the DATA statement, then an INPUT statement (naming the variables being read in and describing the format of the data), and then the CARDS statement preceding the data.

ANALYSIS ON SUBSET OF VARIABLES---analysis on a subset of variables from the INPUT statement is done through the VAR (abbreviation for VARIABLE) statement. For example, if we had six variables (Xl X2 X3 X4 X5 X6) on the INPUT statement and only wished correlations for the first three, then we would insert VAR Xl X2 X3 after the PROC CORR statement. STATISTICS FOR SUBGROUPS---obtained through use of BY statement. Suppose we want the correlations for males and females on variables X, Y, and Z. If the subjects have not been sorted on sex, then we sort them first using PROC SORT, and the control lines are PROC CORR ; PROC SORT ; BY SEX ; MISSING VALUES-these are represented with either periods or blanks.
