What is Multivariate Analysis?

Multivariate analysis is required when there are 4 or more dependent variables to be examined against an independent variable or variables. The challenge for an information visualization designer is to help someone make sense of these complex relationships. While a univariate analysis (with only a single dependent variable) is very simple to carry out – the more dependent variables that are added to a data set, the more difficult it becomes to represent these relationships in a way that is meaningful to the user.
