Least Squares Metric, Unidimensional Scaling of Multivariate Linear Models.
Poole, Keith T.
Psychometrika, v55 n1 p123-49 Mar 1990
A general approach to least-squares unidimensional scaling is presented. Ordering information contained in the parameters is used to transform the standard squared error loss function into a discrete rather than continuous form. Monte Carlo tests with 38,094 ratings of 261 senators, and 1,258 representatives demonstrate the procedure's application. (SLD)
