Abstract: Correspondence analysis (CA) is an exploratory statistical technique that allows us to represent graphically the dependence between rows and columns of contingency tables (also called “cross-tabulations”) in order to discover hidden patterns of association and to facilitate data interpretation. While the foundations of this technique are in the work of K. Pearson and R. A. Fisher, namely in their analysis of contingency tables (see hypothesis testing), the origin of CA can be traced back to the French linguist Jean-Paul Benzécri, who in 1960 developed it in its current form and who can therefore be considered its father.
