With Minitab's multivariate analysis procedures, you can analyze your data when you have made multiple measurements on items or subjects. You can choose to:
  • Analyze the covariance structure of the data to understand it or to reduce the data dimension
  • Assign observations to groups
  • Explore relationships between categorical variables

Because Minitab does not compare tests of significance for multivariate procedures, interpreting the results is somewhat subjective. However, you can make informed conclusions if you understand your data.
