Using the `fitted`

responses (probabilities) to the difference scale, new responses are generated which permit new bootstrap replications of estimated scales to be generated. The mean scale is useful for evaluating bias and the standard deviation for estimating standard errors of the scale values.

`x` |
an object of class ‘mlds’ or ‘mlbs’ depending on which function is called. |

`nsim` |
an integer, the number of simulations. |

`no.warn` |
logical indicating when TRUE (default) to suppress warnings from |

Either the scale values (from ‘glm’ method) or the scale values and *σ* (from ‘optim’ method) permit the fitted probabilities to be estimated. These are used to generate new responses to the quadruples using `rbinom`

. The new responses are then used with `mlds`

to estimate a bootstrapped scale. This is repeated *N* times and stored in the output with the mean and standard deviation of the bootstrapped scales.
