Describes the contributions to axes for MCA and variants of MCA

Share:

Description

Identifies the categories and individuals that contribute the most characteristic according to each dimension obtained by a Factor Analysis. It allows to analyze variants of MCA, such as 'specific' MCA or 'class specific' MCA.

Usage

1
dimcontrib(resmca, dim = c(1,2), best = TRUE)

Arguments

resmca

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

dim

dimensions to describe (default is c(1,2))

best

if FALSE, displays all the categories; if TRUE (default), displays only categories and individuals with contributions higher than average

Details

Contributions are sorted and assigned a positive or negative sign according to the corresponding categories or individuals' coordinates, so as to facilitate interpretation.

Value

Returns a list:

var

a list of categories' contributions to axes

ind

a list of individuals' contributions to axes
