His later years were devoted to the statistical development of genetics. He left Cambridge on retirement and settled in Adelaide, Australia, where he had been offered an appointment by the Commonwealth Scientific and Industrial Research Organization. He died there from embolism in 1962. These final days of his life have been well described by a member of the family that rented him a room, a person who later made a name for himself in the field of mathematical genetics and, who as a student at the time, profited greatly from Fisher's willingness to solve his statistical problems.

Because the rotation of the coordinate system does not change the distances between the data points and the centroid, maximizing the sum of squared distances between 0 and R also results in minimizing the sum of squared distances between P and R. , the residual variance. This argument also holds for more than two dimensions: because the PC I is the direction that has maximal variance, all other principal components taken together have minimal variance. Hence, the PC I axis can be seen as a least-squares fit of a straight line to the scatter of data points in the space of Jog-transformed, bivariate or multivariate data .
