APPLICATION OF MULTIPLE CORRESPONDENCE ANALYSIS TO THE CEDB (COMPONENT EVENT DATA BANK)
The present paper briefly outlines preliminary experience of the application of multiple correspondence analysis to the CEDB data bank. It can be said that the representation of the cloud of points in the plot made by the main principal axis allows a powerful, simultaneous view of the data, revealing the main structures, including consistency of coding practice, as well as more fundamental relationships. In summary, MCA appears to give the opportunity to obtain a unique simultaneous presentation of coded data from which many items of interest can be distilled; and therefore deserves further investigation.
