Nonlinear Programming Approach to Optimal Scaling of Partially Ordered Categories
Nishisato, Shizuhiko; Arri, P. S.
Psychometrika, 40, 4, 525-48, Dec 75
A modified technique of separable programming was used to maximize the squared correlation ratio of weighted responses to partially ordered categories. The technique employs a polygonal approximation to each single-variable function by choosing mesh points around the initial approximation supplied by Nishisato's method. Numerical examples were provided. (Author/BJG)
