3 Multivariate exploratory analysis of quantitative data We now show how the use of matrix notation allows us to summarise multivariate relationships among the variables in a more compact way. This also facilitates explanation of multivariate exploratory analysis in general terms, without necessarily going through the bivariate case. In this section we assume that the data matrix contains exclusively quantitative variables. In the next section we will deal with qualitative variables. Let X be a data matrix with n rows and p columns.

This method assumes a probability model, usually Gaussian. It decomposes the variance–covariance matrix into two parts, one part common to all the variables corresponding to the presence of underlying latent (unobserved or unmeasurable) variables, and the other part specific to each variable. In this framework, the chosen principal components identify the latent variables and are interpretated accordingly. In addition, it is possible to employ methods of ‘rotation’ of the components (latent factors) that modify the weight coefficients, improving the interpretability.

SUMMARY STATISTICS 25 comes from a bivariate normal distribution, the correlation between two variables is significantly different from zero when √ r(X, Y ) 1 − r 2 (X, Y ) n − 2 > tα/2 , where tα/2 is the 100(1 − α/2)% percentile of a Student’s t distribution with n − 2 degrees of freedom, n being the number of observations. 96. 3 Multivariate exploratory analysis of quantitative data We now show how the use of matrix notation allows us to summarise multivariate relationships among the variables in a more compact way.
