CANCORR Procedure

The CANCORR procedure performs canonical correlation, partial canonical correlation, and canonical redundancy analysis. The procedure enables you to do the following:

  • test a series of hypotheses that each canonical correlation and all smaller canonical correlations are zero in the population.
  • use multiple regression analysis options to aid in interpreting the canonical correlation analysis
  • compute standardized and unstandardized canonical coefficients
  • compute canonical structure matrices
  • base the canonical analysis on partial correlations
  • create a data set that contains the scores of each observation on each canonical variable
  • create a data set that contains the canonical correlations, coefficients, and most other statistics computed by the procedure
  • create a data set that corresponds to any output table
  • compute weighted product-moment correlation coefficients
  • perform BY group processing, which enables you to obtain separate analyses on grouped observations
