Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


Assignment of optimum scores to the categories of a multidimensional contingency table by use of a stepwise method of canonical correlations for more than two vector variables is proposed and illustrated for the well-known blood serological data of Taylor, first analyzed by Fisher. This stepwise method provides a technique for eliminating categories that do not contribute significantly to the relationship.
