Canonical Correlation: Terms and Descriptions.
Pugh, Richard C.; Hu, Yuehluen
The use of terms to describe and interpret results from canonical correlation analysis has been inconsistent across research studies. This study assembled the terminology related to the use and interpretation of canonical correlation analysis from research articles, textbooks, and computer manuals. Research articles using canonical correlation were culled from the "Journal of Educational Research" from 1978 to 1989. At least 10 textbooks on multivariate analysis and the computer manuals for the Statistical Analysis System program and the Statistical Package for the Social Sciences (SPSS-X) were reviewed. There was considerable inconsistency in the use of the terminology in research articles, textbooks, and computer manuals. To address this confusion, a 69-item dictionary/thesaurus is presented; 32 of the terms include definitions and the remaining terms are cross-referenced to these terms. A 51-item list of references is included. (Author/SLD)
