Homogeneity Analysis with "k" Sets of Variables: An Alternating Least Squares Method with Optimal Scaling Features.
van der Burg, Eeke; de Leeuw, Jan
Psychometrika, v53 n2 p177-97 Jun 1988
Homogeneity analysis (multiple correspondence analysis), which is usually applied to "k" separate variables, was applied to sets of variables by using sums within sets. The resulting technique, OVERALS, uses optimal scaling. The corresponding OVERALS computer program minimizes a least squares loss function via an alternating least squares algorithm. (TJH)
