Computes contributions for a correspondence analysis

Share:

Description

From MCA results, computes contributions of categories and variables to the axes and the overall cloud.

Usage

1
contrib(resmca)

Arguments

resmca

object of class 'MCA', 'speMCA' or 'csMCA'

Details

The contribution of a point to an axis depends both on the distance from the point to the origin point along the axis and on the weight of the point. The contributions of points to axes are the main aid to interpretation (see Le Roux and Rouanet, 2004 and 2010).

Value

A list of data frames:

ctr

Data frame with the contributions of categories to axes

var.ctr

Data frame with the contributions of variables to axes

ctr.cloud

Data frame with the contributions of categories to the overall cloud

vctr.cloud

Data frame with the contributions of variables to the overall cloud
