Description

higher_composite creates a higher order construct from first-order constructs using the two-stage method (Becker et al., 2012).

Usage

1
higher_composite(construct_name, dimensions, method, weights)

Arguments

construct_name

of second-order construct

dimensions

the first-order constructs

method

is the estimation method, default is two_stage

weights

is the relationship between the second-order construct and first-order constructs. This can be specified as correlation_weights or mode_A for correlation weights (Mode A) or as regression_weights or mode_B for regression weights (Mode B). Default is correlation weights.

Details

This function conveniently maps first-order constructs onto second-order constructs using construct names.

Value

A vector of the indicators for a higher-order-composite.
