SOCY 7703 Multivariate Statistics (Spring: 3 )


Course Description

This course assumes knowledge of the material covered in SOCY7702; that is, a solid background in SPSS and a relatively recent basic course in basic statistics. We will cover exploratory factor analysis, logistic regression, and maybe discriminant analysis; but our focus, and more than 50% of the course, will deal with multiple regression and related issues and procedures including: data transformations, analysis of residuals and outliers, interaction terms, quadratic regression, dummy variables, analysis of covariance, stepwise regression, and path analysis. This course does not require a knowledge of matrix algebra or calculus.
