Advantages of Multivariate Analysis. Close resemblance to how the researcher thinks. Easy visualisation and interpretation of data. More information is analysed simultaneously, giving greater power. Relationship between variables is understood better.
Total Sum of Squares ( Syy ) is made up of two parts:
(i). Explained by the regression
(ii). Residual Sum of Squares
Sum of Squares ÷ its degree of freedom = Mean Sum of Squares (MSS)
The ratio MSS due to regression ÷ MSS Residual = F ratio
