The dimension reduction analysis indicated that three out of four canonical variates
We organized the 257 specimens into one sample for a principal components analysis (PCA) and 13 samples for a canonical variate
analysis (CVA) to search for patterns of geographic variation.
Scatter plots of the 1st versus the 2nd canonical variates
for all datasets indicated that tight and distinctive groupings occur when k = 3 or 4; scatter plots for three clusters are given in Figure 2.
Both the variates
mutually shared 36 per cent variance (the derived values such as squares or square roots of a number may not exactly tally because of rounding off up to two places after decimal).
This is an estimate of the shared variance between the canonical variates
from the two sets.
The magnitude and direction of the canonical correlation between these two canonical variates
The optimal control variates
are solutions of the first-order conditions (note that the objective function is convex); we get
Data on the first pair of canonical variates
are highlighted in Table 1.
The first and third variates
also indicate that low-cost producers tend to align with other low-cost producers which supports H8.

Three groups were readily discernible in a plot of the first two canonical variates
The second pair of variates
indicated that endorsement of belief in extraordinary life forms and superstitions might often be found in people, particularly men, with a conviction that they are victims of bad luck.
