Relationship between variable numbers in PCA eigenvalue table and variable names in the Eigenvectors (loadings) table

Postby pharoh » Fri Jul 29, 2016 2:34 pm

Hello,

I was wondering whether variable numbers in the PCA eigenvalue table correspond to the variable names in the Eigenvectors (loadings) table, e.g., is variable #1 in the former table the first variable name in the first column of the latter table? Thank you.

The columns represent the variable loadings for each component, so yes, though PC1, PC2 aren't the most informative names.
