Computer Program of Forward Selection and Backward Elimination Procedure in Linear Discriminant Analysis and Test for Differences Between Mean Values of Two Populations

Osaki Hirokazu
Kikuchi Susumu
In multivariate analysis, the linear discriminant analysis and the test for differences between mean values of two populations are of wide application. It is not essential to increase the variables only in order to increase the degree of accuracy of discrimination or test without evaluating the effect of variables. Therefore the computer program of selection procedures of variables in these two methods is mentioned in this paper.
