composite_u_matrix(
  ri_mat = NULL,
  ra_mat = NULL,
  u_vec,
  wt_vec = rep(1, length(u_vec)),
  sign_r_vec = 1
)

Arguments

ri_mat

Range-restricted correlation matrix from which the composite is to be computed (if NULL, ri_mat is estimated from ra_mat).

ra_mat

Unrestricted correlation matrix from which the composite is to be computed (if NULL, ra_mat is estimated from ri_mat).

u_vec

Vector of u ratios associated with variables in the composite to be formed.

wt_vec

Weights to be used in forming the composite (by default, all variables receive equal weight).

sign_r_vec

The signs of the relationships between the variables in the composite and the variable by which range restriction was induced.

Details

This is computed as:

\mjdeqn

u_composite=\sqrt\frac\left(\mathbfw\circ\mathbfu\right)^T\mathbfR_i\left(\mathbfw\circ\mathbfu\right)\mathbfw^T\mathbfR_a\mathbfwu_composite = sqrt((t(wt * u) R_i (wt * u) / (t(wt) R_a wt))

where \mjeqnu_compositeu_composite is the composite u ratio, \mjeqn\mathbfuu is a vector of u ratios, \mjeqn\mathbfR_iR_i is a range-restricted correlation matrix, \mjeqn\mathbfR_aR_a is an unrestricted correlation matrix, and \mjeqn\mathbfwwt is a vector of weights.

Value

The estimated u ratio of the composite variable.

composite_u_matrix(ri_mat = matrix(c(1, .3, .3, 1), 2, 2), u_vec = c(.8, .8))
