Analytical strategies are discussed to study trends in data from repeated social survey research with correspondence analysis. By adding time to the contingency table, changing social categories can be studied over time with composite, multiple, or joint correspondence analysis. Doing so, one has to assume a stable society. By adding time twice, changing social categories can be studied in the context of their changing society. This last analytical strategy is illustrated with the case of the membership of Dutch broadcasting associations in changing Dutch society of the last decades (1979–2005).

Cross- tabulations are used in many different studies as a useful tool to synthetically report data, and are also useful when analyst wishes to seek for latent data structures. The latter case is when Correspondence Analysis (CA) comes...

    In this paper we separate many-one reducibility from truth-table reducibility for distributional problems in DistNP under the hypothesis that P ? NP. As a first example we consider the 3-Satisfiability problem (3SAT) with two different distributions on 3CNF formulas. We show that 3SAT with a...
