All you need to do with MCA to analyse a survey is in Factoshiny!
MCA – Multiple Correspondence Analysis – is a method for exploring and visualizing data obtained from a survey or a questionnaire, i.e. datasets with categorical variables.
The function Factoshiny of the package Factoshiny allows you to perform MCA in a really easy way. You can include extras information such as quantitative variables, manage missing data, draw and improve the graphs interactively, draw confidence ellipses, have several numeric indicators as outputs, perform clustering on the MCA results, and even have an automatic interpretation of the results. Finally, the function returns the lines of code to parameterize the analysis and redo the graphs, which makes the analysis reproducible.
Implementation with R software
The lines of code to do a MCA:
install.packages(Factoshiny) library(Factoshiny) data(tea) result <- Factoshiny(tea)
Theorectical and practical informations on Multiple Correspondence Analysis are available in these 4 course videos:
Here is the material used in the videos:
- Hobbies data: the data set– Rmarkdown – the script with the outputs
- Tea data: the data set – Rmarkdown– the script with the outputs
