The method was no doubt suggested to Clay’s ingenious mind by the colour of his accomplice’s hair.

For a large number of classes (for each variable) the resulting n × p frequency matrix can be hard to interpret. Correspondence analysis is a tool for developing simple indices that show us relations between row and column categories.
