weightSign: Sign ambiquity corrections

Description

Sign ambiquity corrections adjust the signs of the weights to satisfy a criterion.

Arguments

W

Weight matrix, where the indicators are on colums and composites are on the rows.

S

Covariance matrix of the data.

Details

Instead of fixing a weight to a particular value, composite variables are typically provided a scale by standardization. This leads to sign indeterminacy because standardized weights W and -W both satisfy the scalign constraint. The sing ambiquity corrections add additional constraints that make

The sign indeterminacy corrections should not be confused with sign chance corrections applied to boostrap samples (See signChange).

Value

W after sign correction.
