Description

Perform Multiple Factor Analysis (MFA) on groups of variables. The groups of variables can be quantitative, qualitative, frequency (MFACT) data, or mixed data.

Usage

1
MFA(data, groups, typegroups = rep("n",length(groups)), namegroups = NULL)

Arguments

data

Data to be analyzed.

groups

Number of columns for each group in order following the order of data in 'data'.

typegroups

Type of group:
"n" for numerical data (default),
"c" for categorical data,
"f" for frequency data.

namegroups

Names for each group.

Value

vtrG

Vector with the sizes of each group.

vtrNG

Vector with the names of each group.

vtrplin

Vector with the values used to balance the lines of the Z matrix.

vtrpcol

Vector with the values used to balance the columns of the Z matrix.

mtxZ

Matrix concatenated and balanced.

mtxA

Matrix of the eigenvalues (variances) with the proportions and proportions accumulated.

mtxU

Matrix U of the singular decomposition of the matrix Z.

mtxV

Matrix V of the singular decomposition of the matrix Z.

mtxF

Matrix global factor scores where the lines are the observations and the columns the components.

mtxEFG

Matrix of the factor scores by group.

mtxCCP

Matrix of the correlation of the principal components with original variables.

mtxEV

Matrix of the partial inertias / scores of the variables
