The first measure is based on advanced human capital, while the second is based on basic human capital. Our measures differ substantially from indicators used in previous studies on human capital and also lead to different rankings of countries. As rankings are not that informative without further information, we analyzed the distance between each country and the sample mean. Differences between countries are much more pronounced for our measure on advanced human capital than for our measure on basic human capital. Using cluster analysis, we classified the countries in four homogenous groups. Unable to display preview.

Welcome to the home page for STAC Click here for all the marks including the final exam marks and final grades, arranged by student number. E-mail me if you see any errors. Most of the statistical methods we have studied so far treat variables one at a time, or treat one variable as dependent on a number of others regression, ANOVA. There are clearly other possibilities. Two ideas that we pursue in this course are Interdependence: a collection of related variables, with no dependent variable, and we try to understand the nature of the dependence.
Other types of dependence: typically with several related dependent variables, and we try to unravel the complicated patterns of dependence. Depending on the goals of our analysis, we need to learn different ways of doing these things.
I like this book because it takes a solidly practical approach, using lots of words and pictures. We meet for two lectures a week Tuesday in B and Thursday in A , plus one tutorial for which we will need to arrange a time.
I will try to schedule this in the Math Computing Lab on the 6th floor of the S wing. How to find me: by e-mail. I intend to respond to your e-mails within two working days.

About this title Offering the latest teaching and practice of applied multivariate statistics, this text is perfect for students who need an applied introduction to the subject. Lattin, Carroll, and Green have created a text that speaks to the needs of applied students who have advanced beyond the beginning level, but are not advanced statistics majors. The text provides a three-part structure. Then, they providing illustrative examples for support.
