Questions tagged [multivariate-analysis]

Analyses where there is more than one variable analyzed together at once, and these variables are either dependent (response) ones or the only ones in the analysis. This can be contrasted with "multiple" or "multivariable" analysis, which implies more than one predictor (independent) variable.
