iwcombinpmatr: Item-weighted Combined input matrix of a data set

iwcombinpmatrR Documentation

Item-weighted Combined input matrix of a data set


Compute the item-weighted Combined input matrix of a data set as defined by Albano and Plaia (2021)


iwcombinpmatr(X, w, Wk = NULL)



A data matrix N by M, in which there are N judges and M objects to be judged. Each row is a ranking of the objects which are represented by the columns. Alternatively X can contain the rankings observed only once. In this case the argument Wk must be used


A M-dimensional row vector (individually weighted items), or a M by M matrix (item similarities)


Optional: the frequency of each ranking in the data


The M by M item-weighted combined input matrix
