The aim of this paper is to show how correspondence analysis can be a useful aid in multiple‐criteria decision making, particularly in the case of categorical criteria values. Under different types of input information, the technique is used to perform some preliminary analyses with a bonus of providing a simultaneous graphical representation of the alternatives and criteria. This picture can provide a better understanding of the structure of the two sets of variables to the decision maker before a decision is made. Copyright © 1992 John Wiley & Sons, Ltd.
