I have the following data for Maryland and Virginia with six different capacity types along with what score (1, 3, or 5) each person grades that capacity type. Essentially what I want to do is see if there is a difference between the distribution of scores between Maryland and Virginia. I have already ran tests such as a Wilcoxon Rank-Sum Test and a Fisher's Exact Test to look at differences for a single capacity type. However, to look at the differences all at once, I read that I need to use Multiple Correspondence Analysis.

Essentially I want to be able to make a few statements based on the MCA output I obtained below. What kind of conclusions can be made? Based on documentation, there are some conclusions I can make such as

The 2-D correspondence analysis accounts for 31.21% of the total intertia.

but I want to be able to make statements that would be meaningful to the general public, if possible. If any other output is necessary for making meaningful conclusions, please let me know.
