Correspondence analysis is a graphical technique to show which rows or columns of a frequency table have similar patterns of counts. In the correspondence analysis plot, there is a point for each row and for each column. Use Correspondence Analysis when you have many levels, making it difficult to derive useful information from the mosaic plot.
The row profile can be defined as the set of rowwise rates, or in other words, the counts in a row divided by the total count for that row. If two rows have very similar row profiles, their points in the correspondence analysis plot are close together. Squared distances between row points are approximately proportional to Chi-square distances that test the homogeneity between the pair of rows.
Column and row profiles are alike because the problem is defined symmetrically. The distance between a row point and a column point has no meaning. However, the directions of columns and rows from the origin are meaningful, and the relationships help interpret the plot.
Use the options in the red triangle menu next to Correspondence Analysis to produce a 3-D scatterplot and add column properties to the data table.
The Details report contains statistical information about the correspondence analysis and shows the values used in the plot.
