Thinking ESSAY © 2010 Cengage Learning All Rights Reserved May not be scanned, copied or duplicated, or posted to a publicly accessible website, in whole or in part 1 Compare and contrast dependence and interdependence techniques List the statistical techniques for both ANS: When hypotheses involve distinction between independent and dependent variables, dependence techniques are needed Multiple regression analysis, multiple discriminant analysis, multivariate analysis of variance, conjoint analysis, and structural equations modeling are all dependence techniques When researchers examine questions that not distinguish between independent and dependent variables, interdependence techniques are used No one variable or variable subset is to be predicted from or explained by the others The most common interdependence methods are factor analysis, cluster analysis, and multidimensional scaling PTS: REF: pp 582-583 NAT: AACSB: Reflective Thinking| AACSB: Communication List the steps in interpreting a multiple regression model ANS: Multiple regression models can be interpreted using these steps: (1) Examine the model F-test for significance (2) Examine the individual statistical

NAT: AACSB: Reflective Thinking| AACSB: Communication Explain how MANOVA models differ from ANOVA models ANS: An ANOVA or MANOVA model represent a form of the general linear model (GLM) ANOVA can be extended beyond one-way ANOVA to predict a dependent variable with multiple categorical independent variables Multivariate analysis of variance (MANOVA) is a multivariate technique that predicts

scanned, copied or duplicated, or posted to a publicly accessible website, in whole or in part Factor analysis is a prototypical multivariate, interdependence technique It is a technique of statistically identifying a reduced number of factors from a larger number of measured variables The factors themselves are not measured, but instead, they are identified by forming a variate using the measured variables Factors are usually latent constructs like attitude or satisfaction or an index like social class A researcher need not distinguish between independent and dependent variables to conduct factor analysis Factor analysis can be divided into two types: exploratory factor analysis (EFA) and confirmatory factor analysis (CFA) Exploratory factor analysis reveals how many factors exist among a set of variables and what variables match up or “load on” which factors A factor loading indicates how strongly correlated a factor is with a measured variable Factor analysis is considered a data reduction technique that allows a researcher to summarize information from many variables into a reduced set of variates or composite variables PTS: REF: p 593 NAT: AACSB: Reflective Thinking| AACSB: Communication Explain how cluster analysis can identify market segments ANS: Cluster analysis is a multivariate approach for identifying objects or individuals that are similar to one another in some respect It classifies individuals or objects into a small number of mutually exclusive and exhaustive groups Objects or individuals are assigned to groups so that there is great similarity within groups and much less similarity between groups The cluster should have high internal (withincluster) homogeneity and external (between-cluster) heterogeneity Cluster analysis facilitates market segmentation by identifying subjects or individuals who have similar needs, lifestyles, or responses to marketing mixes PTS: REF: p 597 NAT: AACSB: Reflective Thinking| AACSB:
