**Principal Component Analysis**for Networks. AU - Petersen, Alexander. AU - Zhao, Jianyang. AU - Carmichael, Owen. AU - Müller, Hans Georg. PY - 2016/9/1. Y1 - 2016/9/1. N2 - In typical functional connectivity studies, connections between voxels or regions in the brain are represented as edges in a network. Networks for different subjects are constructed at a given graph density and are summarized by some network measure such as path length. Examining these summary measures for many density values yields samples of connectivity curves, one for each individual. This has led to the adoption of basic tools of functional data analysis, most commonly to compare control and disease groups through the average curves in each group. Such group differences, however, neglect the variability in the sample of connectivity curves. In this article, the use of functional**principal component analysis**(FPCA) is demonstrated to enrich ...###### Principle component analysis determines the direction of maximum variance of data for a given feature set.True or false ...

###### More powerful significant testing for time course gene expression data using functional principal component analysis approaches...

One of the fundamental problems in time course gene expression data analysis is to identify genes associated with a biological process or a particular stimulus of interest, like a treatment or virus infection. Most of the existing methods for this problem are designed for data with longitudinal replicates. But in reality, many time course gene experiments have no replicates or only have a small number of independent replicates. We focus on the case without replicates and propose a new method for identifying differentially expressed genes by incorporating the functional

**principal component analysis**(FPCA) into a hypothesis testing framework. The data-driven eigenfunctions allow a flexible and parsimonious representation of time course gene expression trajectories, leaving more degrees of freedom for the inference compared to that using a prespecified basis. Moreover, the information of all genes is borrowed for individual gene inferences. The proposed approach turns out to be more powerful in identifying###### OSA | Spatial carrier phase-shifting algorithm based on principal component analysis method

A non-iterative spatial phase-shifting algorithm based on

**principal component analysis**(PCA) is proposed to directly extract the phase from only a single spatial carrier interferogram. Firstly, we compose a set of phase-shifted fringe patterns from the original spatial carrier interferogram shifting by one pixel their starting position. Secondly, two uncorrelated quadrature signals that correspond to the first and second principal components are extracted from the phase-shifted interferograms by the PCA algorithm. Then, the modulating phase is calculated from the arctangent function of the two quadrature signals. Meanwhile, the main factors that may influence the performance of the proposed method are analyzed and discussed, such as the level of random noise, the carrier-frequency values and the angle of carrier-frequency of fringe pattern. Numerical simulations and experiments are given to demonstrate the performance of the proposed method and the results show that the proposed method is fast, ...###### Characterizing autistic disorder based on principle component analysis - IIUM Repository (IRep)

Autism is often diagnosed during preschool or toddled age. This diagnosis often depends on behavioral test. It is known that individuals with autism have abnormal brain signals different from typical persons yet this difference in signals is slight that it is often difficult to distinguish from the normal. However, Electroencephalogram (EEG) signals have a lot of information which reflect the behavior of brain functions which therefore captures the marker for autism, help to early diagnose and speed the treatment. This work investigates and compares classification process for autism in open-eyed tasks and motor movement by using Principle Component Analysis (PCA) for feature extracted in Time-frequency domain to reduce data dimension. The results show that the proposed method gives accuracy in the range 90-100% for autism and normal children in motor task and around 90% to detect normal in open-eyed tasks though difficult to detect autism in this task.. ...

###### Multivariate time series analysis based on principal component analysis :: University of Southern California Dissertations and...

Time series is a series of observations over time. When there is one observation at each time instance, it is called a univariate time series (UTS), and when there are more than one observations, it is called a multivariate time series (MTS). While UTS datasets have been extensively explored, MTS datasets have not been broadly investigated. The techniques for UTS datasets, however, cannot be simply extended for MTS datasets, since multivariate time series is different from multiple univariate time series. That is, an MTS item may not be broken into multiple univariate time series and be separately analyzed, because this will result in the loss of the correlation information within the multivariate time series.; In this dissertation, we introduce a set of techniques for multivariate time series analysis based on

**principal component analysis**(PCA). As a similarity measure for MTS datasets, we present Eros (Extended Frobenius norm). Eros computes the similarity between two MTS items by comparing ...###### FORECASTING RETURNS FOR THE STOCK EXCHANGE OF THAILAND INDEX USING MULTIPLE REGRESSION BASED ON PRINCIPAL COMPONENT ANALYSIS |...

The aim of this study was to forecast the returns for the Stock Exchange of Thailand (SET) Index by adding some explanatory variables and stationary Autoregressive Moving-Average order p and q (ARMA (p, q)) in the mean equation of returns. In addition, we used

**Principal Component Analysis**(PCA) to remove possible complications caused by multicollinearity. Afterwards, we forecast the volatility of the returns for the SET Index. Results showed that the ARMA (1,1), which includes multiple regression based on PCA, has the best performance. In forecasting the volatility of returns, the GARCH model performs best for one day ahead; and the EGARCH model performs best for five days, ten days and twenty-two days ahead.###### Feature reduction of hyperspectral images: Discriminant analysis and the first principal component

When the number of training samples is limited, feature reduction plays an important role in classification of hyperspectral images. In this paper, we propose a supervised feature extraction method based on discriminant analysis (DA) which uses the first principal component (PC1) to weight the scatter matrices. The proposed method, called DA-PC1, copes with the small sample size problem and has not the limitation of linear discriminant analysis (LDA) in the number of extracted features. In DA-PC1, the dominant structure of distribution is preserved by PC1 and the class separability is increased by DA. The experimental results show the good performance of DA-PC1 compared to some state-of-the-art feature extraction methods.

Kinetic modeling using a reference region is a common method for the analysis of dynamic PET studies. Available methods for outlining regions of interest representing reference regions are usually time-consuming and difficult and tend to be subjective; therefore, MRI is used to help physicians and experts to define regions of interest with higher precision. The current work introduces a fast and automated method to delineate the reference region of images obtained from an N-methyl-(11)C-2-(4-methylaminophenyl)-6-hydroxy-benzothiazole ((11)C-PIB) PET study on Alzheimer disease patients and healthy controls using a newly introduced masked volumewise principal-component analysis.. METHODS: The analysis was performed on PET studies from 22 Alzheimer disease patients (baseline, follow-up, and test/retest studies) and 4 healthy controls, that is, a total of 26 individual scans. The second principal-component images, which illustrate the kinetic behavior of the tracer in gray matter of the cerebellar ...

###### Principal component analysis - Wikipedia

Given a set of points in Euclidean space, the first principal component corresponds to a line that passes through the multidimensional mean and minimizes the sum of squares of the distances of the points from the line. The second principal component corresponds to the same concept after all correlation with the first principal component has been subtracted from the points. The singular values (in Σ) are the square roots of the eigenvalues of the matrix XTX. Each eigenvalue is proportional to the portion of the variance (more correctly of the sum of the squared distances of the points from their multidimensional mean) that is associated with each eigenvector. The sum of all the eigenvalues is equal to the sum of the squared distances of the points from their multidimensional mean. PCA essentially rotates the set of points around their mean in order to align with the principal components. This moves as much of the variance as possible (using an orthogonal transformation) into the first few ...

###### unsupervised learning - How to consider different samples in functional data clustering? - Cross Validated

I think that what you describe is a standard application of multivariate functional data clustering. In the context of multivariate functional data each data unit is treated as the relation of a $d$-dimensional stochastic (often Gaussian) process $X := ( X_1, \dots , X_d )$.. Jacques & Preda (the authors of the nice survey paper you attach) have (somewhat) recently published a paper on Model-based clustering for multivariate functional data (2014) which extends their earlier work on Clustering multivariate functional data (2012). Approximately at the same time Chiou et al. also on Multivariate functional principal component analysis: A normalization approach (2014). Note that the two approach are quite different; Chious approach has a particular (very flexible) parametric association between the curve-samples while Jacques & Preda is much more data-driven.. Both of these works are based on multivariate functional

TY - GEN. T1 - A novel dimensionality reduction technique based on independent component analysis for modeling microarray gene expression data. AU - Liu, Han. AU - Kustra, Rafal. AU - Zhang, Ji. PY - 2004/12/1. Y1 - 2004/12/1. N2 - DNA microarray experiments generating thousands of gene expression measurements, are being used to gather information from tissue and cell samples regarding gene expression differences that will be useful in diagnosing disease. But one challenge of microarray studies is the fact that the number n of samples collected is relatively small compared to the number p of genes per sample which are usually in thousands. In statistical terms this very large number of predictors compared to a small number of samples or observations makes the classification problem difficult. This is known as the curse of dimensionality problem. An efficient way to solve this problem is by using dimensionality reduction techniques. Principle Component Analysis(PCA) is a leading method for ...

###### Bacterial adaptation during chronic infection revealed by independent component analysis of transcriptomic data - DTU Orbit

Background: Bacteria employ a variety of adaptation strategies during the course of chronic infections. Understanding bacterial adaptation can facilitate the identification of novel drug targets for better treatment of infectious diseases. Transcriptome profiling is a comprehensive and high-throughput approach for characterization of bacterial clinical isolates from infections. However, exploitation of the complex, noisy and high-dimensional transcriptomic dataset is difficult and often hindered by low statistical power. Results: In this study, we have applied two kinds of unsupervised analysis methods, principle component analysis (PCA) and independent component analysis (ICA), to extract and characterize the most informative features from transcriptomic dataset generated from cystic fibrosis (CF) Pseudomonas aeruginosa isolates. ICA was shown to be able to efficiently extract biological meaningful features from the transcriptomic dataset and improve clustering patterns of CF isolates. ...

###### NAVER Academic | Nonlinear Robust Regression Using Kernel Principal Component Analysis and R-Estimators

In recent years, many algorithms based on kernel

**principal component analysis**(KPCA) have been proposed including kernel principal component regression (KPCR). KPCR can be viewed as a non-linearization of principal component regression (PCR) which uses the ordinary least squares (OLS) for estimating its regression coefficients. We use PCR to dispose the negative effects of multicollinearity in regression models. However, it is well known that the main disadvantage of OLS is its sensitiveness to the presence of outliers. Therefore, KPCR can be inappropriate to be used for data set containing outliers. In this paper, we propose a novel nonlinear robust technique using hybridization of KPCA and R-estimators. The proposed technique is compared to KPCR and gives better results than KPCR.###### All sparse PCA models are wrong, but some are useful.

**Principal Component Analysis**(sPCA) is a popular matrix factorization approach based on**Principal Component Analysis**(PCA) that combines variance maximization and sparsity with the ultimate goal of improving data interpretation. When moving from PCA to sPCA, there are a number of implications that the practitioner needs to be aware of. A relevant one is that scores and loadings in sPCA may not be orthogonal. For this reason, the traditional way of computing scores, residuals and variance explained that is used in the classical PCA can lead to unexpected properties and therefore incorrect interpretations in sPCA. This also affects how sPCA components should be visualized. In this paper we illustrate this problem both theoretically and ...###### Adaptation of multiple regression analysis to identify effective factors of water losses in water distribution systems | Smart...

It is important to manage leaks in water distribution systems by smart water technologies. In order to reduce the water loss, researches on the main factors of water pipe network affecting non-revenue water (NRW) are being actively carried out. In recent years, research has been conducted to estimate NRW using statistical analysis techniques such as Artificial Neural Network (ANN) and Principle Component Analysis (PCA). Research on identifying factors that affect NRW in the target area is actively underway. In this study, Principle components selected through Multiple Regression Analysis are reclassified and applied to NRW estimation using PCA-ANN. The results show that the principal components estimated through PCA are connected to the NRW estimation using ANN. The detailed NRW estimation methodology presented through the study, as a result of simulating PCA-ANN after selecting statistically significant factors by MRA, forward method showed higher NRW estimation accuracy than other MRA methods.

###### Principal Component Analysis (PCA) - Dataiku DSS 8.0 documentation

Principal component analysis is a popular tool for performing dimensionality reduction in a dataset. PCA performs a linear transformation of a dataset (having possibly correlated variables) to a dimension of linearly uncorrelated variables (called principal components). This transformation aims to maximize the variance of the data. In practice, you would select a subset of the principal components to represent your dataset in a reduced dimension.. The

**Principal Component Analysis**card provides a visual representation of a dataset in a reduced dimension.. ...###### Principal Component Regression predicts functional responses across individuals

Inter-subject variability is a major hurdle for neuroimaging group-level inference, as it creates complex image patterns that are not captured by standard analysis models and jeopardizes the sensitivity of statistical procedures. A solution to this problem is to model random subjects effects by using the redundant information conveyed by multiple imaging contrasts. In this paper, we introduce a novel analysis framework, where we estimate the amount of variance that is fit by a random effects subspace learned on other images; we show that a principal component regression estimator outperforms other regression models and that it fits a significant proportion (10% to 25%) of the between-subject variability. This proves for the first time that the accumulation of contrasts in each individual can provide the basis for more sensitive neuroimaging group analyzes.

###### Strongly convex programming for exact matrix completion and robust principal component analysis

The common task in matrix completion (MC) and robust
principle component analysis (RPCA) is to recover a low-rank matrix
from a given data matrix. These problems gained great attention from various areas
in applied sciences recently, especially after the publication of the pioneering
works of Candès et al.. One fundamental result in MC and RPCA is
that nuclear norm based convex optimizations lead to the exact low-rank matrix
recovery under suitable conditions. In this paper, we extend this result by showing that strongly convex optimizations can guarantee
the exact low-rank matrix recovery as well. The result in this paper not only
provides sufficient conditions under which the strongly convex models lead to the exact low-rank matrix recovery,
but also guides us on how to choose suitable parameters in practical algorithms.

###### Dienekes Anthropology Blog: 10/2004

A principal components analysis was carried out on male crania from the northeast quadrant of Africa and selected European and other African series. Individuals, not predefined groups, were the units of study, while nevertheless keeping group membership in evidence. The first principal component seems to largely capture size variation in crania from all of the regions. The same general morphometric trends were found to exist within the African and European crania, although there was some broad separation along a cline. Anatomically, the second principal component captures predominant trends denoting a broader to narrower nasal aperture combined with a similar shape change in the maxilla, an inverse relation between face-base lengths (projection) and base breadths, and a decrease in anterior base length relative to base breadth. The third principal component broadly describes trends within Africa and Europe: specifically, a change from a combination of a relatively narrower face and longer vault, ...

###### Classification of Alzheimer Disease Based on Structural Magnetic Resonance Imaging by Kernel Support Vector Machine Decision...

In this paper we proposed a novel classification system to distinguish among elderly subjects with Alzheimers disease (AD), mild cognitive impairment (MCI), and normal controls (NC). The method employed the magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) data of 178 subjects consisting of 97 NCs, 57 MCIs, and 24 ADs. First, all these three dimensional (3D) MRI images were preprocessed with atlasregistered normalization. Then, gray matter images were extracted and the 3D images were undersampled. Afterwards, principle component analysis was applied for feature extraction. In total, 20 principal components (PC) were extracted from 3D MRI data using singular value decomposition (SVD) algorithm, and 2 PCs were extracted from additional information (consisting of demographics, clinical examination, and derived anatomic volumes) using alternating least squares (ALS). On the basic of the 22 features, we constructed a kernel support vector machine decision tree (kSVM-DT). The error penalty parameter C and kernel ...

The classical functional linear regression model (FLM) and its extensions, which are based on the assumption that all individuals are mutually independent, have been well studied and are used by many researchers. This independence assumption is sometimes violated in practice, especially when data with a network structure are collected in scientific disciplines including marketing, sociology and spatial economics. However, relatively few studies have examined the applications of FLM to data with network structures. We propose a novel spatial functional linear model (SFLM), that incorporates a spatial autoregressive parameter and a spatial weight matrix into FLM to accommodate spatial dependencies among individuals. The proposed model is relatively flexible as it takes advantage of FLM in handling high-dimensional covariates and spatial autoregressive (SAR) model in capturing network dependencies. We develop an estimation method based on functional

**principal component analysis**(FPCA) and maximum###### Cluster Analysis in R with Big Data Applications by Alicia T. Lamere

This chapter discusses several popular clustering functions and open source software packages in R and their feasibility of use on larger datasets. These will include the kmeans() function, the pvclust package, and the DBSCAN (density-based spatial clustering of applications with noise) package, which implement K-means, hierarchical, and density-based clustering, respectively. Dimension reduction methods such as PCA (principle component analysis) and SVD (singular value decomposition), as well as the choice of distance measure, are explored as methods to improve the performance of hierarchical and model-based clustering methods on larger datasets. These methods are illustrated through an application to a dataset of RNA-sequencing expression data for cancer patients obtained from the Cancer Genome Atlas Kidney Clear Cell Carcinoma (TCGA-KIRC) data collection from The Cancer Imaging Archive (TCIA).

###### Monte Carlo Algorithm for Least Dependent Non-Negative Mixture Decomposition - CaltechAUTHORS

We propose a simulated annealing algorithm (stochastic non-negative independent component analysis, SNICA) for blind decomposition of linear mixtures of non-negative sources with non-negative coefficients. The demixing is based on a Metropolis-type Monte Carlo search for least dependent components, with the mutual information between recovered components as a cost function and their non-negativity as a hard constraint. Elementary moves are shears in two-dimensional subspaces and rotations in three-dimensional subspaces. The algorithm is geared at decomposing signals whose probability densities peak at zero, the case typical in analytical spectroscopy and multivariate curve resolution. The decomposition performance on large samples of synthetic mixtures and experimental data is much better than that of traditional blind source separation methods based on

Chaka sheep, named after Chaka Salt Lake, are adapted to a harsh, highly saline environment. They are known for their high-grade meat quality and are a valuable genetic resource in China. Furthermore, the Chaka sheep breed has been designated a geographical symbol of agricultural products by the Chinese Ministry of Agriculture. The genomes of 10 Chaka sheep were sequenced using next-generation sequencing, and compared to that of additional Chinese sheep breeds (Mongolian: Bayinbuluke and Tan; Tibetan: Oula sheep) to explore its population structure, genetic diversity and positive selection signatures. Principle component analysis and a neighbor-joining tree indicated that Chaka sheep significantly diverged from Bayinbuluke, Tan, and Oula sheep. Moreover, they were found to have descended from unique ancestors (K = 2 and K = 3) according to the structure analysis. The Chaka sheep genome demonstrated comparable genetic diversity from the other three breeds, as indicated by observed heterozygosity (Ho),

###### Population History of the Dniester-Carpathians: evidence from Alu insertion and Y-chromosome polymorphisms

The Dniester-Carpathian region has attracted much attention from historians, linguists, and anthropologists, but remains insufficiently studied genetically. We have analyzed a set of autosomal polymorphic loci and Y-chromosome markers in six autochthonous Dniester-Carpathian population groups: 2 Moldavian, 1 Romanian, 1 Ukrainian and 2 Gagauz populations. To gain insight into the population history of the region, the data obtained in this study were compared with corresponding data for other populations of Western Eurasia. The analysis of 12 Alu human-specific polymorphisms in 513 individuals from the Dniester-Carpathian region showed a high degree of homogeneity among Dniester-Carpathian as well as southeastern European populations. The observed homogeneity suggests either a common ancestry of all southeastern European populations or a strong gene flow between them. Nevertheless, tree reconstruction and principle component analyses allow the distinction between Balkan-Carpathian (Macedonians, ...

###### Spectral Methods for Modeling Language

We use spectral methods (SVD) to building statistical language models. The resulting vector models of language are then used to predict a variety of properties of words including their entity type (E.g., person, place, organization ...), their part of speech, and their meaning (or at least their word sense). Canonical Correlation Analysis, CCA, a generalization of Principle Component Analysis (PCA), gives context-oblivious vector representations of words. More sophisticated spectral methods are used to estimate Hidden Markov Models (HMMs) and generative parsing models. These methods give state estimates for words and phrases based on their contexts, and probabilites for word sequences. These again can be used to imrpove performance on many NLP tasks. Core to this work is the use of the Eigenword, a real-valued vector associated with a word that captures its meaning in the sense that distributionally similar words have similar eigenwords. Eigenwords are computed as the singular vectors of the ...

###### Single cell immune profiling by mass cytometry of newly diagnosed chronic phase chronic myeloid leukemia treated with nilotinib...

Mass cytometry enabled the measurement of more than 30 intracellular and cell surface markers on each single cell, with an additional six channels reserved for metal barcoding for sample multiplexing.30 The convenient single tube labeling of multiplexed samples combined with semiautomatic analysis makes the technique highly efficient. We were able to recapitulate the expected hematologic response, and could also demonstrate the debulking of leukemic CD34 cells in the PB by immunophenotyping as early as one week after start of therapy. Importantly, by simultaneously probing key intracellular phosphorylation targets of the Bcr-Abl1 signaling network,32 we monitored changes in signal transduction of individual cell types for each patient undergoing TKI therapy. Unsupervised principle component analysis of these early changes in signal transduction allowed patients to be identified according to their BCR-ABL1, indicating a possible future prognostic impact of this approach..

###### Characterization of PM1-Bound Metallic Elements in the Ambient Air at a High Mountain Site in Northern China - Aerosol and Air...

The PM-bound metallic elements in 43 daily PM1 samples collected at Mount Tai during a summer campaign were analyzed by ICP-MS. The PM1 concentrations ranged between 11.02 and 83.71 µg m-3, with an average of 38.98 µg m-3, and were influenced by meteorological events, exhibiting an increasing trend in the early stage of rain, followed by a significant decrease denoting efficient scavenging. Higher elemental concentrations were detected at Mount Tai than at other overseas background sites. According to the enrichment factor (EF) and geo-accumulation index (Igeo) calculations, among the 16 considered elements, Mn, Al, Co, Sr, Mo, Fe, Ca, V, Ti and Ni in the PM1 were mainly of crustal origin, while Cu, Cr, As, Zn, Pb and Cd were primarily due to anthropogenic causes. Source identification via Pearson correlation analysis and principle component analysis showed that coal mining and coal burning activities, metal processing industries and vehicle emissions were common sources of heavy metals on Mount Tai;

###### Establishment of regulatory elements during erythro-megakaryopoiesis identifies hematopoietic lineage-commitment points |...

Enhancers and promoters are cis-acting regulatory elements associated with lineage-specific gene expression. Previous studies showed that different categories of active regulatory elements are in regions of open chromatin, and each category is associated with a specific subset of post-translationally marked histones. These regulatory elements are systematically activated and repressed to promote commitment of hematopoietic stem cells along separate differentiation paths, including the closely related erythrocyte (ERY) and megakaryocyte (MK) lineages. However, the order in which these decisions are made remains unclear. To characterize the order of cell fate decisions during hematopoiesis, we collected primary cells from mouse bone marrow and isolated 10 hematopoietic populations to generate transcriptomes and genome-wide maps of chromatin accessibility and histone H3 acetylated at lysine 27 binding (H3K27ac). Principle component analysis of transcriptional and open chromatin profiles demonstrated that

BACKGROUND: Cryopreservation introduces iatrogenic damage to sperm cells due to excess production of reactive oxygen species (ROS) that can damage sperm macromolecules and alter the physiochemical properties of sperm cells. These altered properties can affect the biological potential of sperm cell towards fertility. OBJECTIVE: The study was designed to assess the role of oxidative stress in sperm DNA damage upon cryopreservation. MATERIALS AND METHODS: Semen samples (160) were classified into fertile and infertile on the basis of Computer Assisted Semen Analysis (CASA), and cryopreserved. Thawed samples were analyzed for 8OHdG marker, sperm chromatin dispersion (SCD)-based DNA fragmentation index (SCD-DFI) and ROS levels. Receiver Operating Characteristics (ROC) was performed to find the specificity and sensitivity of SCD-DFI in assessing the sperm DNA integrity. Principle component analysis (PCA) was performed to group semen parameters. RESULTS: SCD-DFI significantly correlates with 8OHdG in ...

###### Super-sparse principal component analyses for high-throughput genomic data | BMC Bioinformatics | Full Text

Principal component analysis (PCA) has gained popularity as a method for the analysis of high-dimensional genomic data. However, it is often difficult to interpret the results because the principal components are linear combinations of all variables, and the coefficients (loadings) are typically nonzero. These nonzero values also reflect poor estimation of the true vector loadings; for example, for gene expression data, biologically we expect only a portion of the genes to be expressed in any tissue, and an even smaller fraction to be involved in a particular process. Sparse PCA methods have recently been introduced for reducing the number of nonzero coefficients, but these existing methods are not satisfactory for high-dimensional data applications because they still give too many nonzero coefficients. Here we propose a new PCA method that uses two innovations to produce an extremely sparse loading vector: (i) a random-effect model on the loadings that leads to an unbounded penalty at the origin and

###### Europes Many Integrations: Geography and Grain Markets, 1620-1913

Downloadable! This article documents and examines the integration of grain markets in Europe across the early modern/late modern divide and across distances and regions. It relies on

**principal component analysis**to identify market structures. The analysis finds that a European market emerged only in the nineteenth century, but the process had earlier roots. In early modern times a fall in trading costs was followed by an increase in market efficiency. Gradually expanding processes of integration unfolded in the long-run. Early modern regional integration was widespread but uneven, with North-Western Europe reaching high levels of integration at a particularly early stage. Low-land European markets tended to be larger and better integrated than in land-locked Europe, especially within large, centralised states. In the nineteenth century, national markets grew in old states, but continental and domestic dynamics had become strictly linked.###### February 2011 - Volume 32 - Issue 1 : Ear and Hearing

This article describes the major statistical analyses used in a large-scale follow-up study of prelingually deaf children implanted before 5 yrs of age. The data from this longitudinal project posed a number of challenges that required a compromise among statistical sophistication, ease of interpretation, consistency with analyses used following the initial wave of data collection, and attention to limited sample size and missing data. Primary analyses were based on principal components analysis to form composite measures of highly correlated variables followed by hierarchical multiple regression to determine the contribution of predictor sets ordered to reflect important causal assumptions and conceptual questions ...
