This work deals with the use of multiple correspondence analysis (MCA) and a weighted Euclidean distance (the tolerance distance) as an exploratory tool in developing predictive logistic models. The method was applied to a living-donor kidney transplant data set with 109 cases and 13 predictors. This approach, followed by backward and forward selection(More)
This work introduces a heuristic index (the "tolerance distance") to define the "closeness" of two variable categories in multiple correspondence analysis (MCA). This index is a weighted Euclidean distance where weightings are based on the "importance" of each MCA axis, and variable categories were considered to be associated when their distances were below(More)
