canonical correlation analysis

A statistical manoeuvre which defines covariation for 2 groups of random variables—x and y—and seeks to identify linear combinations of the x's and the y's which have maximum correlation with each other.

Canonical correlation was used to examine the relationship between coping and psychological help-seeking attitudes and intentions (Guarino, 2004; Sherry & Henson, 2005).

To test the hypotheses, we conducted a canonical correlation analysis (Tabachnick & Fidell, 2013), with the ICM skills specified as loading on the skills variates, and the ICM outcomes specified as loading on the outcomes variates.
