Huberty, Carl J.; Wisenbaker, Joseph M.
Journal of Educational Statistics, v17 n1 p75-91 Spr 1992
Interpretations of relative variable importance in multivariate analysis of variance are discussed, with attention to (1) latent construct definition; (2) linear discriminant function scores; and (3) grouping variable effects. Two numerical ranking methods are proposed and compared by the bootstrap approach using two real data sets. (SLD)
