Multiple Correspondence Analysis Results - Options Tab

Select the Options tab of the Multiple Correspondence Analysis Results dialog box access the options described here.

Number of dimensions. Use the options in the Number of dimensions group box to determine the number of dimensions for which to compute row and column coordinates (for spreadsheets and plots of points options available on the Quick and Advanced tabs).

Number of dimensions. If you select the Number of dimensions option button, you can enter a fixed number of dimensions in the field adjacent to the option.

Cumulative contribution to inertia. If you select the Cumulative contribution to inertia option button, STATISTICA will determine the minimum number of dimensions necessary so that the cumulative percent of total inertia exceeds the respective percentage value, specified in the field below this option.

Note: The maximum number of eigenvalues that can be extracted from a Burt table is equal to: Sum(no. of categoriesi - 1), where the summation is over the i factors in the Burt table. If you choose to extract the maximum number of dimensions that can be extracted, then you can reproduce exactly all information contained in the Burt table (see Computational Details for details concerning the overall "model" equation).

Standardization of coordinates. Use the options here to determine the method of standardization. Options include Row & column profiles, Canonical standardization, Row profiles (interpret row dist.), and Column profiles (interpret col. dist.).
