Overview

Simple Principal Components Analysis (PCA; see vignette("pca")) and (Multiple) Correspondence Analysis (CA) based on the Singular Value Decomposition (SVD). This package provides S4 classes and methods to compute, extract, summarize and visualize results of multivariate data analysis. It also includes methods for partial bootstrap validation.

There are many very good packages for multivariate data analysis (such as FactoMineR, ade4, vegan or ca, all extended by FactoExtra). dimensio is designed to be as simple as possible, providing all the necessary tools to explore the results of the analysis.

Installation

You can install the released version of dimensio from CRAN with:

install.packages("dimensio")

And the development version from GitHub with:

# install.packages("remotes")
remotes::install_github("tesselle/dimensio")

Usage

## Install extra packages (if needed)
# install.packages("khroma")

## Load packages
library(dimensio)

Compute

## Load data
data(iris)

## Compute PCA
X <- pca(iris, center = TRUE, scale = TRUE, sup_quali = "Species")

Extract

dimensio provides several methods to extract the results:

Visualize

The package allows to quickly visualize the results:

The viz_*() functions allow to highlight additional information by varying different graphical elements (color, transparency, shape and size of symbols…).

## Form biplot
biplot(X, type = "form")

## Highlight species
viz_individuals(
  x = X, 
  highlight = iris$Species, 
  col = khroma::color("high contrast")(3), 
  pch = 16
)
## Add ellipses
viz_tolerance(
  x = X, 
  group = iris$Species, 
  level = 0.95,
  border = khroma::color("high contrast")(3)
)

## Highlight petal length
viz_individuals(
  x = X,
  highlight = iris$Petal.Length,
  col = khroma::color("iridescent")(255), 
  cex = c(1, 2),
  pch = 16
)

## Plot variables factor map
viz_variables(X)

## Scree plot
screeplot(X, eigenvalues = FALSE, cumulative = TRUE)
