Sample text

Typically, k = 2, so that the results of the procedure can be conveniently represented in a scatterplot. The illustrated solution is also known as least squares scaling. A variant of least squares scaling is Sammon mapping, that minimises n n i=1 j =1 (δij − dij )2 , δij thereby preserving smaller distances. When the proximities between objects are expressed by a Euclidean distance, it can be shown that the solution of the previous problem corresponds to the principal component scores that would be obtained if the data matrix were available.

In this framework, the chosen principal components identify the latent variables and are interpretated accordingly. In addition, it is possible to employ methods of ‘rotation’ of the components (latent factors) that modify the weight coefficients, improving the interpretability. For further details on factor analysis we refer the reader to Bollen (1989). Principal components analysis is probably one of the simplest data reduction methodsas it is based on linear transformations. Essentially, the scores obtained transform the original data into linear projections on the reduced space, minimising the Euclidean distance between the coordinates in the original space and the transformed data.

This permits us to interpret each principal component talking about the variables with which it is mostly correlated (in absolute value). We conclude this subsection with three remarks on principal components analysis: • • The method of principal components permit us to reduce the complexity of a data matrix, in terms of number of variables, going from a data matrix Xn·p to a matrix with fewer columns, according to the transformation Yn·k = Xn·p Ap·k , where Ap·k is the matrix obtained stacking columnwise the eigenvectors corresponding to the principal components.
