This is an advanced introduction to the analysis of multivariate and categorical data. Topics include: 1) dimensional reduction techniques, including principal component analysis, multidimensional scaling and extensions; 2) classification, starting with a conceptual framework developed from cost functions, Bayes classifiers, and issues of over-fitting and generalization, and continuing with a discussion of specific classification methods, including LDA, QDA, and KNN; 3) discrete data analysis, including estimation and testing for log-linear models and contingency tables; 4) large-scale multiple hypothesis testing, including Bonferroni, Westphal-Young and related approaches, and false discovery rates; 5) shrinkage and regularization, including ridge regression, principal component regression, partial least squares, and the lasso; 6) clustering methods, including hierarchical methods, partitioning methods, K-means, and model based clustering.
