2.1. Principles
The Principal Component Analysis is an exploratory method of data organized in the form of large charts. It is based on the same principles as the other methods called "factor methods", uses the same whole mathematical battery and applies very near calculation procedures and interpretation mechanisms.

The Principal Component analysis notably gives a global and organized in hierarchy vision of the information inside the initial chart in the form of graphic representations generated by axis called "factor axis".
