This book is especially designed to provide doctoral students with a theoretical knowledge of the concepts underlying the most important multivariate techniques and an overview of actual applications. It offers a clear, succinct exposition of each technique with emphasis on when each technique is appropriate and how to use it. This second edition, fully revised, updated, and expanded, reflects the most current evolution in the methods for data analysis in management and the social sciences. In particular, it places a greater emphasis on measurement models, and includes new chapters and sections on:confirmatory factor analysis,
canonical correlation analysis, cluster analysis, analysis of covariance structure, multi-group confirmatory factor analysis and analysis of covariance structures.
Featuring numerous examples, the book may serve as an advanced text or as a resource for applied researchers in industry who want to understand the foundations of the methods and to learn how they can be applied using widely available statistical software.
