Description

Estimate the number of components in PCA .

Usage

1
estim_ncp(X, ncp.min=0, ncp.max=NULL, scale=TRUE, method="GCV")

Arguments

X

a data frame with continuous variables

ncp.min

minimum number of dimensions to interpret, by default 0

ncp.max

maximum number of dimensions to interpret, by default NULL which corresponds to the number of columns minus 2

scale

a boolean, if TRUE (value set by default) then data are scaled to unit variance

method

method used to estimate the number of components, "GCV" for the generalized cross-validation approximation or "Smooth" for the smoothing method (by default "GCV")

Value

Returns ncp the best number of dimensions to use (find the minimum or the first local minimum) and the mean error for each dimension tested
