Data reduction and latent variable models

11th December 2012 to 12th December 2012

The course runs from 9:00 am to 6:00 pm each day.

This course provides students with an understanding of and gives them practice in the use of data reduction techniques and non-regression based analysis methods such as Principal Component Analysis and Factor Analysis. It provides a practical understanding of the methods of modelling relationships between latent variables and introduces the basics of structural equation modelling using AMOS.
