I am using stata 10 for mac. I want to do a principal component analysis
over a correlation table (and not have the program do an additional
correlation over the data).  While the option exists in the menu, it does
not allow the diagonal to be blank.  Please advise on how to allow for the
diagonal to remain blank, to avoid having it part of the analysis.
We are doing cultural consensus analysis over hand-drawn agreement tables,
as correlations underestimate agreement between individuals.
Thank you,
Catherine
