    Multivariate analysis - help




    Hi,

    I'm looking at place of death in a group of people, I have information on where they died, what they died of, their ethnicity, the area of residence and age group. I'm using STATA to run the XI: logit command and have been using just single variables to conduct univariate analysis.

    Can I use all of the variables above to determine what really affects place of death if so what is the benefit of using multivariate analysis over repeated univariate analysis?

    Thanks in advance

    Tim

    Hi Gm,

    thanks for your response. Can this be implemented in STATA though?

    Best Wishes

    Hi!

    I have to admit that I do not use STATA. I know that any good statpack routinely offers CA among the Multivariate Analyses modules.

    Alternatively, you can use the free program PAST:
