Abstract:

The logical patterns defined in this report are matrices whose columns are random variables with very few discrete realizations on a nominal scale e.g., responses 0 - 1 - 3 could be different hair colors. It is assumed that all the variables are influenced by a few major events producing the pattern. Rows are assumed to be either independent or to show auto-correlation of log 1, including, e.g., the Markov chain dependence. A Lancaster scaling technique is used for translating the nominal responses a factor analysis latent class model is used to account for the influence of major events. Numerical examples, based upon computer runs, are presented for illustration. Author
