Multivariate Research

Multivariate analysis allows for analysis of more than two variables at a time.  Multivariate analyses can consider multiple predictors and multiple outcomes at the same time allowing for reduction of Type I error and an increase in power. A multivariate approach can allow the researchers to analyze the data in a way that is most reflective of the actual context and environment.

Some multivariate techniques are multiple regression analysis, path analysis, factor analysis and multivariate analysis of variance (MANOVA).
