Stepwise Method

An alternative to the simultaneous method. Involves entering the independent variables into the discriminant function one at a time, based on the basis of their discriminating power. The single best variable is chosen first; the initial variable is then paired with each of the other independent variables, one at a time, and a second variable is chosen, and so on.
