Chapter 1 Introduction

Welcome to the lab notes for Statistics for Social Sciences II: Multivariate Techniques. Along these notes we will see how to effectively implement the statistical methods presented in the lectures. The exposition we will follow is based on learning by analyzing datasets and real-case studies, always with the help of statistical software. While doing so, we will illustrate the key insights of some multivariate techniques and the adequate use of advanced statistical software.

Be advised that these notes are neither an exhaustive, rigorous nor comprehensive treatment of the broad statistical branch know as Multivariate Analysis. They are just a helpful resource to implement the specific topics covered in this limited course.
