  • Abstract:

    Despite not being a hot topic of discussion amongst Australian (and many other English speaking) statisticians, correspondence analysis has gained an international reputation for being a versatile and intuitive approach for graphically summarising the association between categorical variables. Its popularity is especially evident in Europe, and also amongst researchers in the ecological and marketing research disciplines. Over the past decade or so there has been increasing attention paid to the methodological development of correspondence analysis and its application in Australia. This talk will describe one very biased perspective to this development - mine. In particular I will pay special attention to developments that have been published, and have been in development, since 2012. I will also provide some insight into future developments.
