The pattern of correlation between two sets of variables can be tested using canonical variate analysis (CVA). CVA, like principal components analysis (PCA) and factor analysis (FA) (Statnote 27, Hilton & Armstrong, 2011b), is a multivariate analysis Essentially, as in PCA/FA, the objective is to determine whether the correlations between two sets of variables can be explained by a smaller number of ‘axes of correlation’ or ‘canonical roots’.
