Calculating internal parameters

Share:

Description

A function to compute internal parameters.

Usage

1
IntPar(rs, rie, modo, bv)

Arguments

rs

A binary matrix specifying the structural relationships between constructs.

rie

A binary matrix specifying nonlinear and interaction effects on the endogenous construct.

modo

A vector with the mode of each block of variables. "F" for formative measurement models or Mode B in PLS structural models.

bv

A vector with the number of manifest variables per construct.

Value

A list with the following components:

nat

A vector with the nature of each construct, exogenous ("ex") or endogenous ("en").

bex

The number of exogenous constructs.

ben

The number of endogenous constructs.

ind.ex

The total number of manifest variables of exogenous constructs.

ind.en

The total number of manifest variables of endogenous constructs.
