### Loads and scales the Liberal-Conservative scales from the 1980 NES.
data(LC1980)
LCdat=LC1980[,-1]	#Dump the column of self-placements

### This command conducts estimates, which we instead load using data()

#LC1980_bbt <- blackbox_transpose(LCdat,missing=c(0,8,9),dims=3,minscale=5,verbose=TRUE)
data(LC1980_bbt)

plot(LC1980_bbt)
par(ask=TRUE)
plotcdf.blackbt(LC1980_bbt)
summary(LC1980_bbt)
