Description

From MCA results, computes statistics (weights, coordinates, contributions, test-values, variances) for a categorical supplementary variable.

Usage

1
varsup(resmca, var)

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.

Value

Returns a list:

weight

numeric vector of categories weights

coord

data frame of categories coordinates

cos2

data frame of categories square cosine

var

data frame of categories within variances, variance between and within categories and variable square correlation ratio (eta2)

v.test
