More general cases, with variables having more than two levels, can be brought back to this setting through the technique of binarisation. Consider data on n visitors to a website, which has P pages. Correspondingly, there are P binary variables, which assume the value 1 if the specific page has been visited, or else the value 0. To demonstrate the application of similarity indexes, we now analyse only data concerning the behaviour of the first two visitors (2 of the n observations) to the website described in Chapter 6, among the P = 28 web pages that they can visit.

The representation is achieved by preserving the original distances as far as possible. 5 explained how to use the method of principal components on a quantitative data matrix in a Euclidean space. It turns the data matrix into a lower-dimensional Euclidean projection by minimising the Euclidean distance between the original observations and the projected ones. Similarly, multidimensional scaling methods look for low-dimensional Euclidean representations of the observations, representations which minimise an appropriate distance between the original distances and the new Euclidean distances.

So far we have defined the odds ratio for 2 × 2 contingency tables. However, odds ratios can be calculated in a similar fashion for larger contingency tables. The odds ratio for I × J tables can be defined with reference to each of I J the = I (I − 2) 2 pairs of rows in combination with each of the = 2 2 I J J (J − 2) 2 pairs of columns. There are odds ratios of this type. As 2 2 the number of odds ratios to be calculated can become enormous, it is wise to choose parsimonious representations. 5 Reduction of dimensionality In the analysis of complex multivariate data sets, it is often necessary to reduce the dimensionality of the problem, expressed by the number of variables present.
