This analysis is used when you have one or more normally distributed interval independent variables and a categorical variable.
Linear discriminant performs a multivariate test of difference between groups. It is also useful in determining the minimum number of dimensions needed to describe these differences.
The statistical significance of this model is explained by Wilk’s lambda value and the Eigen value
When Eigen value> 1, groups are distinct and hence the model has good discriminating power.
Wilk’s lambda is a measure of the extent of misfit of the Discriminant solution. The value of Lambda range from 0 to 1, a value closer to 0 indicates the groups are distinctly different and a value closest to 1 shows groups are overlapping.
When lambda is <0.5, solution is statistically significant and acceptable.
