Metric Scaling
Correspondence Analysis



October 1990 | 96 pages | SAGE Publications, Inc
This book presents a set of closely-related techniques that facilitate the visual exploration and display of a wide variety of multivariate data, both categorical and continuous. Three methods of metric scaling - correspondence analysis, principal components analysis and multiple dimensional preference scaling - are explored in detail for their strengths and weaknesses over a wide range of data types and research situations. The book focuses upon representing the relations among two or more sets of variables, and upon applications that are exploratory in nature rather than predictive.

SAGE Research Methods is a research methods tool created to help researchers, faculty and students with their research projects. SAGE Research Methods links over 175,000 pages of SAGE’s renowned book, journal and reference content with truly advanced search and discovery tools. Researchers can explore methods concepts to help them design research projects, understand particular methods or identify a new method, conduct their research, and write up their findings. Since SAGE Research Methods focuses on methodology rather than disciplines, it can be used across the social sciences, health sciences, and more.

With SAGE Research Methods, researchers can explore their chosen method across the depth and breadth of content, expanding or refining their search as needed; read online, print, or email full-text content; utilize suggested related methods and links to related authors from SAGE Research Methods' robust library and unique features; and even share their own collections of content through Methods Lists. SAGE Research Methods contains content from over 720 books, dictionaries, encyclopedias, and handbooks, the entire “Little Green Book,” and "Little Blue Book” series, two Major Works collating a selection of journal articles, and specially commissioned videos.
