Methods Related to MDS
In this chapter, some other techniques are discussed that have something in common with MDS. First, we discuss the analysis of a variables-by-objects data matrix by principal components analysis and show how it is related to MDS. Then, some approaches for the analysis of asymmetric dissimilarity data are discussed, all with emphasis on a graphic display of the asymmetry. Finally, we discuss correspondence analysis, a technique particularly suited for the analysis of a contingency table of two categorical variables.
