  • Cannonical correlation

    1. 1. Canonical Correlation<br />
    2. 2. Introduction<br /> If we have two sets of variables, x1,...., xn and y1,….., ym, and there are correlations among the variables, then canonical correlation analysis will enable us to find linear combinations of the x's and the y's which have maximum correlation with each other.<br />Canonical correlation begin with the observed values of two sets of variables relating to the same set of areas, and a theory or hypothesis that suggests that the two are interrelated.<br />The overriding concern is with the structural relationship between the two sets of data as a whole, rather than the associations between individual variables<br />
    3. 3. Canonical correlation is the most general form of correlation.<br />Multiple regression analysis is a more specific case in which one of the sets of data contains only one variable, while product moment correlation is the most specific case in that both sets of data contain only one variable.<br />Canonical correlation analysis is not related to factor/principal components analysis despite certain conceptual and terminological similarities. Canonical correlation analysis is used to investigate the inter-correlation between two sets of variables, whereas factor/principal components analysis identifies the patterns of relationship within one set of data.<br />
    4. 4. Difficulties in Canonical Correlation<br />Canonical correlation is not the easiest of techniques to follow, though the problems of comprehension are conceptual rather than mathematical.<br />Unlike multiple regression and principal components analysis, we cannot provide a graphic device to illustrate even the simplest form. For with canonical correlation analysis we are dealing with two sets of data. Even the most elementary example must, therefore, have at least two variables on each side and so we require 2 + 2 = 4 dimensions. Tied as we are, however, to a three dimensional world, a true understanding of the technique in the conventional cognitive/visual sense of the term, is beyond our grasp. <br />
    5. 5. Conceptual Overview<br />Data Input<br />The size of the matrices : There is no requirement in canonical analysis that there must be the same number of variables (columns) in each matrix, though there must be the same number of areas (rows). (There must of course be more than one variable in each set otherwise we would be dealing with multiple regression analysis)<br />The order of the matrices : Neither set of data is given priority in the analysis so it does not matter which we term the criteria and which the predictors. Unlike simple linear regression there is no concept of a 'dependent' set or an 'independent' set. But in practice the smaller set is always taken second as this simplifies the calculation enormously<br />
    6. 6. Advantages<br />Useful and powerful technique for exploring the relationships among multiple dependent and independent variables. Results obtained from a canonical analysis should suggest answers to questions concerning the number of ways in which the two sets of multiple variables are related, the strengths of the relationships.<br />Multiple regressions are used for many-to-one relationships, canonical correlation is used for many-to-many relationships. <br /> Canonical Correlation- More than one such linear correlation <br /> relating the two sets of variables, with each <br /> such correlation representing a different <br /> dimension by which the independent set of <br /> variables is related to the dependent set.<br />
    7. 7. <ul><li>Interpretability:</li></ul>Although mathematically elegant, canonical solutions are often un- <br /> interpretable. Furthermore, the rotation of canonical variates to <br /> improve interpretability is not a common practice in research, even <br /> though it is commonplace to do this for factor analysis and principle <br /> components analysis.<br /><ul><li>Linear relationship:</li></ul>Another problem using canonical correlation for research is that <br /> the algorithm used emphasizes the linear relationship between <br /> two sets of variables. If the relationship between variables is not <br /> linear, then using a canonical correlation for the analysis may <br /> miss some or most of the relationship between variables.<br />

    15. 15. Introduction<br />Problem: AUN bids to keep with her value statement i.e. highest standards of integrity, transparency and academic honest.<br />Solution: Appraise & select Faculties for promotion based on various promotion committees’ scores.<br />Issues : Dwindling funding, <br /> need for a bias free selection technique,<br />
    16. 16. Research Hypotheses<br /><ul><li>H01 : CCA cannot detect bias scoring for any of the candidates from any of the named committees with 90% confidence level.
    17. 17. H02: CCA cannot detect significantly whether or not score-weights of each of the Promotion Assessors have over bearing influence on the promotability of candidates.
    18. 18. H03: CCA cannot at 90% level of certainity discriminate between candidates that have earned promotion scores and those that could not from various promotion committees of the university.</li></li></ul><li>Research objectives<br /> To test the efficacy of Canonical Correlation Analysis as a relevant statistical tool for adaption in bias free promotion score processing and promotion bias scoring detector so as to ensure fairness, integrity, transparency and academic honest in analysis of applicants’ score and in reaching Faculties’ promotion decision. <br />

    27. 27. Scores of Promotable and Non-promotable Candidates<br />
    28. 28. Data Input<br />The data input view containing the three groups of assessors and individual assessors<br />
    29. 29. SPSS Results <br />Analyze ⇒General Linear Model⇒Multivariate<br />SPSS classified candidates into two groups of promotable and non promotable of 5 and 9 respectively.<br />The result leads to the rejection of Null hypothesis Ho3 which states that Canonical Correlation Analysis cannot with 90% confidence level discriminate between promotable and non promotable candidates<br />
    30. 30.
    31. 31. Multivariate Test<br /><ul><li>The Multivariate tests indicate the effect of scores of the group and individual assessors both on status determination and bias impact on such status. The figure shows that the computed values and critical table values differences are very insignificant.
    32. 32. Candidate’s status determination resulting from scores across the assessors and those that might result from bias scoring are very insignificant(Wilk’s lambda value =0.041)
    33. 33. There is no between-status differences in the scores between assessors of both group and individuals
    34. 34. Rejection of Null hypothesis (Ho1) which states that Canonical Correlation Analysis cannot detect bias</li></li></ul><li>
    35. 35. The results of the table show that the scores of each assessor had a significant effect on the determination of each Candidate Status as the significance is 0.135.<br />
    36. 36. Test for homogeneity of variance<br />Overbearing score weight influence test hypothesis is aimed at detecting across the individual assessors’ mark allocations and weights assigned to each.<br />In this test, the assessors having low significance value mean that there is homogeneity of variance.<br />
    37. 37.
    38. 38. This Leads to rejection of null hypothesis (Ho2) which states that Canonical Correlation Analysis cannot detect significantly whether or not score-weights of each of the promotion assessors has overbearing influence on the promotability of candidates.<br />
    39. 39. Shortcomings and limitations of the process<br /><ul><li> Procedures that maximize correlation between canonical variate pairs do not necessarily lead to solutions that make logical sense. it is the canonical variates that are actually being interpreted and they are interpreted in pairs. a variate is interpreted by considering the pattern of variables that are highly correlated (loaded) with it. variables in one set of the solution can be very sensitive to the identity of the variables in the other set.
    40. 40. The pairings of canonical variates must be independent of all other pairs.</li></li></ul><li>Conclusion from research analysis:<br />From Table it can be seen that the order of promotable rankings but application of Canonical Correlation Analysis results produced different ranking of candidates.<br />Rejection of Null Hypothesis(H03):The results as shown in tables indicate the Canonical Correlation Analysis status discriminatory ability of grouping Candidates into promotable and Non-promotable status. The result leads to the rejection of Null hypothesis Ho3 which states that Canonical Correlation Analysis cannot with 90% confidence level discriminate between promotable and nonpromotable candidates based on their earned scores.<br />
    41. 41. Continued………….<br />Rejection of Null Hypothesis(Ho1):Pillar’s trace of 0.041, Wilk’s Lambda of 0.041, Hotelling’s trace of 0.041 and Roy’s Largest Root of 0.041 - all of them showed that p<0.05, it means that there is no between-status differences in the scores between assessors of both group and individuals, thereby leading to the rejection of Null hypothesis (Ho1) which states that Canonical Correlation Analysis cannot detect bias.<br />Rejection of Null Hypothesis(Ho2):For Group Assessors - Internal Assessors with p=0.096, External Academic Assessors with p=0.526 and The President’s Assessment with p=0.0001, shows that except that of the President, the weight assigned to scores of other two are group assessors are insignificant- lead us to reject the Null hypothesis (Ho2) which states that Canonical Correlation Analysis cannot detect significantly whether or not score-weights of each of the promotion assessors has overbearing influence on the promotability of candidates.<br />
