Regression with Qualitative and Quantitative Variables: An Alternating Least Squares Method with Optimal Scaling Features
And Others; Young, Forrest W.
Psychometrika, 41, 4, 505-29, Dec 76
A method is discussed which extends canonical regression analysis to the situation where the variables may be measured as nominal, ordinal, or interval, and where they may be either continuous or discrete. The method, which is purely descriptive, uses an alternating least squares algorithm and is robust. Examples are provided. (Author/JKS)
