Multivariate Factor Analysis A Method for Psychological Analysis. This is a graduate level 3-credit, asynchronous online course. In this course we will examine a variety of statistical methods for multivariate data, including multivariate extensions of t-tests and analysis of variance, dimension reduction techniques such as principal component analysis, factor analysis, canonical correlation analysis, and classification and clustering methods.

Factor analysis is a statistical method used to describe variability among observed, correlated variables. The goal of performing factor analysis is to search for some unobserved variables called factors. The observed variables are modelled . Statistics is the discipline that concerns the collection, organization, displaying, analysis, interpretation and presentation of data. In applying statistics to a scientific, industrial, or social problem, it is conventional to begin with a statistical population or a statistical model to be studied. Populations can be diverse groups of people or objects such as "all people living in a.

Proponents feel that factor analysis is the greatest invention since the double bed, while its detractors feel it is a useless procedure that can be used to support nearly any desired interpretation of the data.

Principal component analysis: This is the most common method used by researchers. PCA starts extracting the maximum variance and puts them into the first factor.

After that, it removes that variance explained by the first factors and then starts extracting maximum variance for the second factor. This process goes to the last factor. Factor analysis is designed to identify sets of variables that are tapping the same underlying phenomenon.

It does this by examining the patterns of correlations among a set of variables. The assumption of factor analysis is that the variables that are identified as belonging to a factor are really measuring the same thing. Another goal of factor analysis is to reduce the number of variables.

The analyst hopes to reduce the interpretation of a question test to the study of 4 or 5 factors. One of the most subtle tasks in factor analysis is determining the appropriate number of factors. Factor analysis has an infinite number of solutions.

Although the sought-after patterns are most often associations between independent and dependent variables, this is not always the case.This book is aimed primarily at microbiologists who are undertaking research, and who require a basic knowledge of statistics to analyse their experimental data.

Computer software employing a wide range of data analysis methods is widely available to experimental scientists. The availability of this software, however, makes it even more essential that microbiologists understand the .
