The aim of this article is to develop optimal sufficient dimension reduction methodology for the conditional mean in multivariate regression. The context is roughly the same as that of a related method by Cook & Setodji (2003), but the new method has several advantages. It is asymptotically optimal in the sense described herein and its test statistic for dimension always has a chi-squared distribution asymptotically under the null hypothesis. Additionally, the optimal method allows tests of predictor effects. A comparison of the two methods is provided.
