    El objetivo principal de este trabajo es poner de manifiesto la importancia que tiene, para todo análisis de carácter exploratorio, la consideración o no de la estructura en diferentes matrices que, en muchas ocasiones, está asociada a la naturaleza de los datos a describir. Para ello se presentan los resultados de un estudio empírico que abarca los dos puntos de vista: tabla única versus tabla múltiple. Para el análisis de la tabla única se ha utilizado el Análisis en Componentes Principales (ACP) y para el análisis de la tabla múltiple el Análisis Factorial Múltiple (AFM). The main objective of this research is to state the importance, for any exploratory analysis, of considering or not the structure in a set of data matrices. Such structure is associated, in many cases, to the nature of the data. In this paper, we present the empirical results obtained from the two points of view: single table vs. multiple table analysis. For the single table case we have used Principal Components Analysis and Multiple Factor Analysis for the multiple table case.
