Description - The Multivariate Social Scientist by Graeme Hutcheson
This is an introduction to multivariate analysis and techniques written in a non-mathematical style. It starts from a simple hypothesis testing, moves towards model-building and takes the reader through the basics of multivariate analysis, including: which tests to use on which data; how to run analyses; how to interpret results; and how to report and present the reports appropriately. Using a unified conceptual approach around Generalized Linear Models, the authors explain the commonalities and relationships between methods that include the analysis of both categorical and continuous data.
