# Multiple Correspondence Analysis Variable Plots

The Variable Plots dialog box allows you to specify the types of plots you want and the variables to be plotted.

**Category Plots.** For each variable selected, a plot of the
centroid coordinates is plotted. Categories are in the centroids of
the objects in the particular categories.

**Joint Category Plots.** This is a single plot of the centroid
coordinates of each selected variable.

**Transformation Plots.** Displays a plot of the optimal category
quantifications versus the category indicators. You can specify the
number of dimensions; one plot will be generated for each dimension.
You can also choose to display residual plots for each variable selected.

**Discrimination Measures.** Produces a single plot of the
discrimination measures for the selected variables.
