Approaching Multivariate Analysis provides an introduction to a range of advanced statistical techniques that are used in psychology, in an accessible, non-mathematical way. The authors take a practical approach with an emphasis on helping the reader to gain an understanding of what each method is for, what it does, and how it does it.

Topics covered in this book are:

  • Multiple regression and partial correlation
  • Factor analysis, cluster analysis and multidimensional scaling
  • Path analysis, and mediation and moderation analysis
  • Discriminant analysis, logistic regression and loglinear analysis.

Instructions on how to do the analyses and how to make sense of the results are fully illustrated with dialogue boxes and output tables from SPSS, and details of how to interpret and report the output are also provided.

This book aims to get students started, and prepares them to approach more comprehensive treatments with confidence. This makes it an ideal text for psychology students, and for students and academic staff in disciplines other than psychology that use multivariate methods.
