Abstract

Biplots display interunit distances, as well as variances and correlations of variables of large datasets. They can be used as a tool to reveal clustering, multicollinearity, and multivariate outliers, and to guide the interpretation of principal component analyses (PCA). This article describes the uses of biplots and its implementation in Stata. Copyright 2005 by StataCorp LP.
