Basic Concepts in Profile Analysis of Means.
Shelton, Matthew
There has been an ongoing debate concerning the usefulness of a statistical technique called profile analysis. Profile analysis is a data analysis process that identifies patterns in a battery of test scores. The use of profile analysis is generally supported by clinicians in the field who are using profile analysis to help determine group differences. The theoretical basis of profile analysis is described, and its implications are discussed. Psychologists who tend to focus on the relationships among groups of subjects tend to support the clinical practice of profile analysis, while statisticians who focus on the relationship between variables generally oppose the practice.
