Often researchers face the challenge of having data that includes many correlated variables. PCA is a technique that is often used in these cases to aid in interpreting the observations and variables. The results of PCA can often be used in ANOVA and regression models. In this short course, we will cover:

• Understanding what scenarios PCA can be useful for.

• Understanding what PCA is.

• Learning to apply PCA transformation in JMP.

• Interpreting PCA for dimension reduction / what not to do.

• Using PCA for robust modeling.
