Abstract

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’.
