screeplot.default plots the variances against the number of the principal component. This is also the plot method for classes "princomp" and "prcomp".

Keywords
multivariate
Usage
# S3 method for default
screeplot(x, npcs = min(10, length(x$sdev)),
          type = c("barplot", "lines"),
          main = deparse(substitute(x)), …)
Arguments
x
an object containing a sdev component, such as that returned by princomp() and prcomp().
npcs
the number of components to be plotted.
type
the type of plot. Can be abbreviated.
main, …

Examples
library(stats) require(graphics) ## The variances of the variables in the ## USArrests data vary by orders of magnitude, so scaling is appropriate (pc.cr <- princomp(USArrests, cor = TRUE)) # inappropriate screeplot(pc.cr) fit <- princomp(covmat = Harman74.cor) screeplot(fit) screeplot(fit, npcs = 24, type = "lines")
