A statistical technique, which is closely related to the models discussed in chapter 10, was developed in France in the 1970’s. This technique known in the English speaking world as correspondence analysis was introduced by Benzecri (1973) as l’Analyse de Correspondance. Many authors have argued that correspondence analysis was not developed in France by Benzecri. This claim is correct in the sense that the technique is closely related to many other forms of statistical analyses, which go far back in time. Some of these connections are discussed in section 11.3 below, where also references will be given. Whatever those connections are, the name correspondence analysis and its popularity in France and neighbouring countries is certainly due to Benzecri and his students.
