Correspondence analysis, Advanced Statistics

The method or technique for displaying the relationships between categorical variables in a type of the scatter plot diagram. For two this type of variables displayed in the form of the contingency table, for instance, a set of coordinate values representing the row and column categories are resultant. A less number of these obtained coordinate values are then used to permit the table to be shown graphically. In the resulting diagram the Euclidean distances estimated chi-squared distances between the row and column categories. The coordinates are analogous to those resulting from the  principal components analysis of continuous variables, except that they involve a partition of a chi-squared statistic rather than the entire variance. Such type of analysis of the contingency table permits a visual examination of any structure or the pattern in the data, and many times acts as a useful supplement to more formal inferential analyses. The Figure arises from applying the technique to the below drawn table.
