Canonical Analysis Model Definition - Descriptives Tab

Canonical Analysis

Select the Descriptives tab of the Canonical Analysis Model Definition dialog box to access the options described here.

Means & standard deviations. Click the Means & standard deviations button to display a spreadsheet with the means and standard deviations for all variables (selected from the Startup Panel). A particularly useful Graph of Input Data for this spreadsheet is the histogram of the frequency distribution for the respective variable. That plot will also indicate the normal distribution, so it may serve as a quick visual check for any violations of the normality assumption.

Correlations. Click the Correlations button to display a spreadsheet with the correlation matrix for all variables (selected from the Startup Panel). A particularly useful Graph of Input Data for this spreadsheet is the scatterplot of the respective two variables that are highlighted.

Box & whisker plot of vars. Click the Box & whisker plot of vars button, select variables from the resulting Select Variables dialog box, and select an option from the Box-Whisker Type dialog box to produce a box and whisker plot (showing medians and quartiles, means and standard deviations, etc.) for selected variables.

Matrix plot of correlations. Click the Matrix plot of correlations button to produce a scatterplot matrix for selected variables.
