The categories that mostly contributed to the formation of the second dimension are: obesity and high body-checking; while for the third dimension was comprised by eutrophia, low and moderate body-checking.
The eutrophia category is also on the positive side, however, its chi-square distance to ground zero axis is minimal (0.02).
On the negative side of this dimension are: male, eutrophia and overweight and also moderate body-checking.
It is still observed in figure 1 that eutrophia and low body-checking are between male and female dividing these two categories almost similarly, and thus being associated with both genders.
It is also evident in figure 2 the association of eutrophia with low and moderate body-checking.
Those individuals with underweight, eutrophia and overweight had a higher association with low and moderate body-checking.
