conc.ellipse | R Documentation |

Adds inertia ellipses to the cloud of individuals of a MCA. By default, concentration ellipses are plotted.

conc.ellipse(resmca, var, sel = 1:nlevels(var), axes = c(1, 2), kappa=2, col = rainbow(length(sel)), pcol = rainbow(length(sel)), pcex = 0.2, lty = 1, lwd = 1, tcex = 1, text.lab = TRUE)

`resmca` |
object of class |

`var` |
supplementary variable to plot |

`sel` |
numeric vector of indexes of the categories to plot (by default, ellipses are plotted for every categories) |

`axes` |
length 2 vector specifying the components to plot (default is c(1,2)) |

`kappa` |
numeric. The kappa value (i.e. "index") of the inertia ellipses. By default, kappa = 2, which means that concentration ellipses are plotted. |

`col` |
vector of colors for the ellipses of plotted categories (by default, rainbow palette is used) |

`pcol` |
vector of colors for the points at the center of ellipses of plotted categories (by default, rainbow palette is used) |

`pcex` |
numerical value giving the amount by which points at the center of ellipses should be magnified (default is 0.2) |

`lty` |
line type for ellipses (default is 1) |

`lwd` |
line width for the ellipses (default is 1) |

`tcex` |
numerical value giving the amount by which labels at the center of ellipses should be magnified (default is 0.2) |

`text.lab` |
whether the labels at the center of ellipses should be displayed (default is TRUE) |

If kappa=2, ellipses are called "concentration" ellipses and, for a normally shaped subcloud, contain 86.47 percents of the points of the subcloud. If kappa=1, ellipses are "indicator" ellipses and contain 39.35 percents of the points of the subcloud. If kappa=1.177, ellipses are "median" ellipses and contain 50 percents of the points of the subcloud. This function has to be used after the cloud of individuals has been drawn.
