When to use bivariate correlation or regression Number of Variables by Type One One Type of Variable IV (quantitative) → DV (quantitative) Nature of Evaluation relationship/prediction Multiple Regression Multiple regression identifies the best combination of predictors (IVs) of the dependent variable. ). To produce the best combination of predictors of the dependent variable, a sequential multiple regression selects independent variables, one at a time, by their ability to account for the most variance in the dependent variable.

In contrast, MANOVA identifies group differences on a combination of quantitative DVs. Discriminant analysis seeks to interpret the pattern of differences among the predictors (IVs). Consequently, the analysis will often produce several sets 17 Chapter 2 A Guide to Multivariate Techniques or combinations of IVs that predict group membership. Each IV set, referred to as a function, represents a mathematical attempt to maximize a linear combination of the IVs to discriminate among groups. Discriminant analysis is best used when groups are formed naturally, based on some characteristic, and not randomly.

They are also referred to as prediction errors because they serve as measures of the differences between obtained and predicted values on a given variable. If standardized residual values are plotted against the predicted values, nonlinearity will be indicated by a curved pattern to the points (Norusis, 1998). In other words, residuals will fall above the zero line for some predicted values and below the line for other predicted values (Tabachnick & Fidell, 2007). Therefore, a relationship that does not violate the linearity assumption will be indicated by the points clustering around the zero line.
