A Legitimate Case of Component Analysis of Ipsative Measures, and Partialling the Mean as an Alternative to Ipsatization.
Ten Berge, Jos M. F.
Multivariate Behavioral Research, v34 n1 p89-102 1999
Discusses ipsatizing variables prior to component analysis by subtracting the mean score of each individual from all the scores of that individual, showing technical objections to component analysis of ipsatized variables to be based on erroneous premises. Suggests partialling the mean component as a superior procedure. (SLD)
