### Statistics

Hi, i am looking for a complicated project idea incorporated into the vast field of statistics. I have much history and have taken the ap exam for statistics and gotten i 5. I am also looking for relatively new concepts or ideas introduced. Thanks

dcnick96,

Use these terms in the search Google bar:

Code: Select all
`principal components analysis for dummies`

Principal components analysis is like black magic. You can use the results obtained both in regression calculations and in cluster analysis. It is ideal for large data sets with many, many intercorrelated dimensions. It is quite remarkable and not so well known to the general public.
