Consistency gaps between configurations

Share:

Description

Show the consistency gaps between configurations

Usage

1

Arguments

x

A fuzzy set truthTable.

Details

Sometimes, QCA users should not mechanically use a pre-determined consistency cut-off. One possible way to determine such a cut-off is to examine the biggest consistency gap between configurations (Schneider & Wagemann,2010:407) and place a cutting point between the two configuations.

The truthTable is sorted according to consistency and outcome first before calculating the consistency gap.

Value

A data frame with 6 columns, with ConsistGap the most important variable.
