The examples listed below showcase GDA's application of the general linear model to discriminant function analysis problems. As described in Comparisons with Other Stepwise Discriminant Analysis Programs, you can use GDA to build ANOVA-like models with highly complex designs, including designs with effects for categorical predictor variables.

GDA Examples of Model Building. The following are examples involving GDA:

Example 1: Stepwise discriminant analysis

Example 2: Best-subset discriminant analysis

GDA Examples of Syntax.

Example 1: Simple standard discriminant analysis

Example 2: Stepwise discriminant analysis with categorical predictors

Refer also the Examples of the General Linear Models (GLM) module as well as the Examples of the General Regression Models (GRM) module for illustrations of various designs for the predictor variables, most of which can be applied in GDA as well.
