Factor analysis
a. Interrelationships among large no of variables
b. From large no of variables, condensing to small no of variables
2. Multiple regression
a. 1 dependent variables and 2/2+ independent variables
b. Predict changes in dependent variables by considering changes in
independent variables
3. Multiple discriminant analysis
a. If single dependent variables is
b. E.g. discriminate between heavy user and light user
a. Several independent variables(non metric) and 2/2+ dependent
b. To test hypothesis concerning variance in group responses on 2 or ore
metric dependent variables
5. Conjoint analysis
a. For evaluating new products, services or ideas
c. Result can be used in product design simulators
6. Canonical correlation
a. Several metric dependent variables and metric independent variables
b. Develop linear combination of each set of variables to maximize
correlation between 2 sets.
c. Obtaining set of weights
7. Cluster analysis
a. Identify the groups
b. Discriminant analysis has already identified groups
8. Multidimensional scaling
a. Transform consumer judgements of similarity or preference into
distances represented in multidimensional space
9. Correspondence analysis
a. Accommodates nonmetric data and nonlinear relationships
b. Contingency table
c. Transforms non metric data to a metric level
10.Linear probability models
a. Combo of multiple regression and multiple discriminant analysis
b. Dependent variable is non metric
11.Structural equation modelling
a. Estimation technique for series of multiple regression equations
b. Structural model: relates independent to dependent variables
c. Measurement model: allows to use several vairables for single
independent or dependent variables
12.Other technique
a. Neural network: relationship identification/data reduction and structure
Dependence technique: eg. Multiple regression
Independence technique: factor analysis
