Writing about web page http://factominer.free.fr/
I went to a particularly interesting ERSC workshop about a month ago, which sparked off my interest in using multiple correspondence analysis as a way of linking qualitative and quantitative data.
From this brief inrtroduction, I have now started looking into Bourdieu and Bourdieu-type applications of MCA to career development / skills areas of research.
One really good resource I found through a book on MCA by Brigitte Le Roux and Henri Rouanet is this FactoMineR environment for R. The website contains useful walkthroughs and examples how MCA (and PCA and CA) can be used.
I will be updating on what I actually thought of using MCA and in what way it can be useful.
