Typically, statistical analysis involves some form of either univariate or multivariate analysis of variance procedures. The latter procedures are recommended for studies that employ multiple dependent variables and that can meet the assumptions of the specific multivariate technique employed; for example, the number of subjects per condition must exceed the number of variables (Davidson, 1972).
