One of the most popular, and versatile, ways of visually analyzing the associating between categorical data is to perform a correspondence analysis on the contingency table that is formed from their cross‐classification. Traditionally the analysis of multiple categorical variables involves transforming such a table into a two‐way form through “flattening,” stacking or by some other means; doing so leads to simple or multiple correspondence analysis. Although such a transformation does not always preserve some of the truly multivariate nature of the association. Therefore one may instead adopt the less common multiway correspondence analysis. This paper will briefly explore the development, literature, and possible research opportunities of multiple and multiway correspondence analysis.
