One multivariate technique that is commonly used is discriminant function analysis. This paper compares and contrasts the two purposes of discriminant analysis, prediction and description. Using a heuristic data set, a conceptual explanation of both techniques is provided with emphasis on which aspects of the computer printouts are essential for the interpretation of each type of discriminant by: 2. explanatory variables ranged from 1 to In addition to discriminant analysis, other techniques used were logit analysis, probit analysis, regression analysis, and neural network. Altman’s () model is the oldest and the most widely cited model using multivariate discriminant analysis (MDA) to predict corporate Size: KB.

Multivariate data analysis is widely employed to classify this type of data. There are two well-known models (Multivariate Logistic regression (MLR) and linear discriminant analysis (LDA)) to predict relations between two or more groups, using a set of predictors.

Chapter Discriminant Analysis Introduction Discriminant Analysis finds a set of prediction equations based on independent variables that are used to classify individuals into groups. There are two possible objectives in a discriminant analysis: finding a predictive equation. The prediction of corporate failure, based on a specific model, is of vital importance to a large body of individuals. The two statistical methodologies which enjoy prominence in the literature when establishing these models are multivariate discriminant analysis and logistic regression by: 6.

Quadratic Discriminant Analysis. In this type of analysis, your observation will be classified in the forms of the group that has the least squared distance. Discriminant analysis is used to predict the probability of belonging to a given class (or category) based on one or multiple predictor variables.

It works with continuous and/or categorical predictor variables. Previously, we have described the logistic regression for two-class classification problems, that is when the outcome variable has two possible values (0/1, no/yes, negative/positive).5/5(2).

This paper uses discriminant and logit analyses to develop prediction models to identify bank acquisition targets. Our study complements the aforementioned studies by developing discriminant and logit models of prediction, while undertaking a systematic comparison of the two sets of models by addressing several methodological issues, such as the approach to select variables, the use of raw versus industry relative data, and other issues involved in the evaluation process for predicting bank acquisition by: Xin Xin, Jianhua Hu, Liangyuan Liu, On the oracle property of a generalized adaptive elastic-net for multivariate linear regression with a diverging number of parameters, Journal of Multivariate Analysis, /,(), ().Cited by: Part of the Meteorological Monographs book series (METEOR, volume 4) Maurice G., A course in multivariate analysis.

Discriminant analysis is a form of multivariate prediction of group membership (similar to multinomial logistic regression analysis), using latent variables. In Graph 1, individuals are characterized on two variables – income (the x variable, in £s per month) and their educational qualifications (the y variable – the higher the value.

This paper illustrates the use of a multicriteria decision aid technique for the development of a model for the prediction of acquisition targets. A sample of 76 UK firms acquired over the period – matched with 76 non-acquired firms is used to develop a model that discriminates between acquired and non-acquired firms.
