The PCA 2D Column Scores tab is shown below:The PCA 2D Column Scores tab contains the following elements:
•
• A plot of the Mahalanobis distances of each componentStudy these elements to decipher patterns in the principal components . For example, look for clusters of points in the scatterplot matrix and parallel plot . Recall each component is a one-dimensional projection that maximizes variability unaccounted for by previous components. Note also the percent variation explained by each component.
