Results: There was statistical significance for the model of CCA (P<.0001). The first set of linear combination of typical variables after standardization, the standardized linear combination of the first pair of typical variables are as following: V1=0.5466 x1-0.1499 x2+0.5107 x3+1.1313 x4+0.3916 x5+1.3175 x6. The second set of linear combination of typical variables after standardization, the standardized linear combination of the first pair of typical variables are as following: U1=-0.3402y1+0.2092y2+0.1619y3+0.0322y4-0.1358y5+0.9530y6.
