Each IV set, referred to as a function, represents a mathematical attempt to maximize a linear combination of the IVs to discriminate among groups. Discriminant analysis is best used when groups are formed naturally, based on some characteristic, and not randomly. Chapter 10 discusses discriminant analysis in further detail. When to use discriminant analysis Number of Variables by Type Two or more One Type of Variable IVs (quantitative) DV (2+ categories) → Nature of Evaluation group prediction Logistic Regression Logistic regression is similar to discriminant analysis in that both identify a set of IVs that best predicts group membership.
To evaluate missing values in rincom2, open the following menus: Analyze Descriptive Statistics Explore For our example, the Frequencies and Explore tables reveal zero missing values for satjob2 and 37 missing values for rincom2. Typically, if a categorical variable has 5% or fewer cases missing, the Listwise default would be utilized to delete the cases during the analysis. If a categorical variable has more than 5% but fewer than 15% of cases with missing data, an additional level or category would be created within the variable so that missing data would be recoded with this new level.
