Biplots, Advanced Statistics

Biplots: It is the multivariate analogue of the scatter plots, which estimates the multivariate distribution of the sample in a few dimensions, typically two and superimpose on these display representations of the variables on which the samples are measured and observed. The relationships amongst the individual sample points can be simply seen and they can also be related to the values of the measurements, thus making such plots useful for giving the graphical explanation of the data, for detecting patterns, and for giving the results found by more formal methods or techniques of analysis. Figure 16 shows the two-dimensional biplot of a set of multivariate data with 34 observations and 10 variables. Also see principal components analysis and corre- spondence analysis.
