Description

Usage

1
orderident(x, method = "summed")

Arguments

x

Object of class 'fsvdraws', usually resulting from a call to fsvsample.

method

Methods currently supported:

  • summean Sort by sum of mean loadings (descending).

  • summeaninv Sort by sum of mean loadings (ascending).

  • summeanabs Sort by sum of mean absolute loadings (descending).

  • summed Sort by sum of median loadings (descending).

  • summedinv Sort by sum of median loadings (ascending).

  • summedabs Sort by sum of median absolute loadings (descending).

  • maxmed Sort by maximum median loadings (descending).

  • maxmedinv Sort by maximum median loadings (ascending).

  • maxmedrel Sort by maximum median loadings, relative to the sum of all median loadings on that factor (descending).

  • maxmedabsrel Sort by maximum absolute median loadings, relative to the sum of all median loadings on that factor (descending).

Value

Returns an object of class 'fsvdraws' with adjusted ordering.
