# print.soc.mca: Print soc.ca objects In soc.ca: Specific Correspondence Analysis for the Social Sciences

## Description

Prints commonly used measures used in the analysis of multiple correspondence analysis

## Usage

 ```1 2``` ```## S3 method for class 'soc.mca' print(x, ...) ```

## Arguments

 `x` is a soc.ca class object `...` further arguments are ignored

## Value

Active dimensions is the number of dimensions remaining after the reduction of the dimensionality of the analysis.

Active modalities is the number of modalities that are not set as passive.

Share of passive mass is the percentage of the total mass that is represented by the passive modalities.

The values represented in the scree plot are the adjusted inertias, see variance

The active variables are represented with their number of active modalities and their share of the total variance/inertia.

soc.mca, contribution

## Examples

 ```1 2``` ```example(soc.ca) print(result) ```

### Example output

```Loading required package: ggplot2

soc.ca> data(taste)

soc.ca> # Create a data frame of factors containing all the active variables
soc.ca> taste          <- taste[which(taste\$Isup == 'Active'), ]

soc.ca> attach(taste)

soc.ca> active         <- data.frame(TV, Film, Art, Eat)

soc.ca> sup            <- data.frame(Gender, Age, Income)

soc.ca> detach(taste)

soc.ca> # Runs the analysis
soc.ca> result         <- soc.mca(active, sup)
