Correspondence Analysis (CA) via ExPosition.

1 2 |

`DATA` |
original data to perform a CA on. |

`DESIGN` |
a design matrix to indicate if rows belong to groups. |

`make_design_nominal` |
a boolean. If TRUE (default), DESIGN is a vector that indicates groups (and will be dummy-coded). If FALSE, DESIGN is a dummy-coded matrix. |

`masses` |
a diagonal matrix or column-vector of masses for the row items. |

`weights` |
a diagonal matrix or column-vector of weights for the column it |

`hellinger` |
a boolean. If FALSE (default), Chi-square distance will be used. If TRUE, Hellinger distance will be used. |

`symmetric` |
a boolean. If TRUE (default) symmetric factor scores for rows and columns are computed. If FALSE, the simplex (column-based) will be returned. |

`graphs` |
a boolean. If TRUE (default), graphs and plots are provided (via |

`k` |
number of components to return. |

`epCA`

performs correspondence analysis. Essentially, a PCA for qualitative data (frequencies, proportions). If you decide to use Hellinger distance, it is best to set `symmetric`

to FALSE.

See `coreCA`

for details on what is returned.
