Correspondence analysis in practice by Michael Greenacre

By Michael Greenacre

Drawing at the author’s event in social and environmental examine, Correspondence research in perform, moment version exhibits how the flexible approach to correspondence research (CA) can be utilized for facts visualization in a large choice of occasions. This thoroughly revised, up to date version contains a didactic strategy with self-contained chapters, wide marginal notes, informative determine and desk captions, and end-of-chapter summaries. 

New to the second one variation

• 5 new chapters on transition and regression relationships, stacked tables, subset correspondence research, research of sq. tables, and canonical correspondence research

• considerably extra figures and tables than the 1st version

• A computational appendix that offers the R instructions that correspond to many of the analyses featured in the course of the ebook, making it effortless for readers to breed the analyses

With 33 years of CA event, the professional writer demonstrates the right way to use easy, particularly nonmathematical ideas to translate complicated tabular facts into extra readable graphical types. CA and its editions a number of CA (MCA) and joint CA (JCA) are appropriate for analyses in a variety of fields, together with advertising learn, the social and environmental sciences, biochemistry, and extra.

332. 0. SUMMARY: Chi-square Distance and Inertia 1. The chi-square (χ2 ) statistic is an overall measure of the difference between the observed frequencies in a contingency table and the expected frequencies calculated under a hypothesis of homogeneity of the row profiles (or of the column profiles). 2. The (total) inertia of a contingency table is the χ2 statistic divided by the total of the table. 3. Geometrically, the inertia measures how “far” the row profiles (or the column profiles) are from their average profile.

If we associate the total row frequencies with the profiles rather than the masses (where the total row frequency is n times the row mass, n being the grand total of the whole table), then the weighted sum of these squared distances is equal to the χ2 statistic.

1 CA visualizes the age groups and gives us more insight into the data. The problem in this example is that one cannot visualize the age group profiles exactly, since they are points situated in a five-dimensional space. Actually, as we saw in the previous three-dimensional examples, the five-element age group profiles lie in a space of one less dimension because the elements of each profile add to 1, but even direct visualization in four-dimensional space is impossible. We might be able to visualize the profiles approximately, however, hoping that they do not “fill” the whole four-dimensional space but rather lie approximately in some low-dimensional subspace of one, two or three dimensions.
