I wanted to prove the correlation between 8 variables. I used spss MANOVA
MANOVA S K A E WITH D AC C AS / discrim all alpha(1) / print=sig(eigen dim).
But I don't get the canonical correlation all I get is the regression analysis and I get the following warning:
The WITHIN CELLS error matrix is SINGULAR. These variables are LINEARLY DEPENDENT on preceding ones .. E Multivariate tests will be skipped.
Can anyone please explain to me why I don't have the correlation. Does this mean that there isn't any canonical correlation? If thats the case, is there any other kind of correlation that might be efficient for my data. Thanks.
