hi 

would it be acceptable to  disregard the categorical data when conduction the PCA. 
the results of using the categorical data are good, and are extremely accureate, 
but im sure thats do to overfitting and not really a true representation of a 
trained model. so would it be acceptale to remove these categorical values and 
conduct the PCA with just a selected set of continuous attributes.

thank you

You can remove the categorical ones, but you need to explain why you want to do that in 
the report.
