Abstract: It is well known that in the human and social sciences the characteristics studied are mainly nominal-categorical. It is exactly the field that the method of correspondence analysis is widely used. The correct reading of the results of the method by non-special users presents several times difficulties and interpretive misconceptions. The purpose is an absolutely clear interpretive visualization of the results of the CA method using the R language, so that the reading of the results becomes automatic without the combined use of the interpretative indicators COR-CTR and co-ordinates.
