Computes a homogeneity test for a categorical supplementary variable

Description

From MCA results, computes a homogeneity test for a categorical supplementary variable, i.e. characterizes the homogeneity of several subclouds.

Usage

homog.test(resmca, var, dim=c(1,2))

Arguments

resmca

object of class MCA, speMCA, csMCA, stMCA or multiMCA

var

the categorical supplementary variable. It does not need to have been used at the MCA step.

dim

the axes which are described. Default is c(1,2)

Value

Returns a list of lists, one for each selected dimension in the MCA. Each list has 2 elements :

test.stat

The square matrix of test statistics

p.values

The square matrix of p.values

Examples

## Performs a specific MCA on 'Music' example data set
## ignoring every 'NA' (i.e. 'not available') categories,
## and then computes a homogeneity test for age supplementary variable.
data(Music)
getindexcat(Music)
mca <- speMCA(Music[,1:5],excl=c(3,6,9,12,15))
homog.test(mca,Music$Age)
