ANTHROPAC's analytical tools include techniques that are unique to Anthropology, such as consensus analysis, as well as standard multivariate tools such as multiple regression, factor analysis, cluster analysis, multidimensional scaling and correspondence analysis. In addition, the program provides a wide variety of data manipulation and transformation tools, plus a full-featured matrix algebra language.ANTHROPAC is accompanied by a 150-page Reference Manual, a 60-page User's Guide, and a 40-page Methods Guide (which provides basic background information on the methods of cultural domain analysis). These manuals are provided in electronic form, not paper.
