A Method of Optimal Scaling for Multivariate Ordinal Data and Its Extensions.
Saito, Takayuki; Otsu, Tatsuo
Psychometrika, v53 n1 p5-25 Mar 1988
A method of optimal scaling for multivariate ordinal data--OSMOD--is described, within a generalized principal component analysis. It yields a: multidimensional configuration of items, unidimensional scale of category weights for each item, and multidimensional configuration of subjects. OSMOD involves solving an eigenvalue problem and executing a quasi-Newton projection method. (TJH)
