Identifies the categories that contribute the most to a given dimension of a Multiple Correspondence Analysis and organizes these informations into a fancy table. It allows to analyze variants of MCA, such as 'specific' MCA or 'class specific' MCA.

1 | ```
tabcontrib(resmca, dim = 1)
``` |

`resmca` |
object of class |

`dim` |
dimension to describe (default is 1st dimension) |

Best contributions - i.e. higher than average - are assigned a positive or negative sign according to the corresponding categories' coordinates, so as to facilitate interpretation. Then they are sorted and organized according to the most contributing variables.

Returns a data frame with the following columns:

`var` |
the names of the most contributing variables |

`moda` |
the names of the most contributing cateories |

`ctr1` |
'negative' contributions, i.e. corresponding to categories with coordinates lower than zero |

`ctr2` |
'positive' contributions, i.e. corresponding to categories with coordinates higher than zero |

`weight` |
weight of the categories |

`ctrtot` |
sum of the best contributions for a given variable |

`cumctrtot` |
cumulated contributions |
