I modern statistics, almost all statistical methods are implemented through algorithms. Thus performance of a statistical method is directly affected by the algorithm for the method. Here we study two well-known algorithms for multivariate data. It is found that the performances of both algorithms decline as dimension increases. The effect of data shape on the algorithms is also studied. Our finding is that the performances of both algorithms decrease as kurtosis increases. Some adjustments for those algorithms will be discussed as well, along with some new descriptive measures for multivariate data.
