inigrid {CUB}R Documentation

Grid-based preliminary parameter estimates for CUB models

Description

Compute the log-likelihood function of a CUB model with parameter vector (π, ξ) ranging in the Cartesian product between x and y, for a given absolute frequency distribution.

Usage

inigrid(m,freq,x,y)

Arguments

m

Number of ordinal categories

freq

Vector of length m of the absolute frequency distribution

x

A set of values to assign to the uncertainty parameter π

y

A set of values to assign to the feeling parameter ξ

Value

It returns the parameter vector corresponding to the maximum value of the log-likelihood for a CUB model without covariates for given frequencies.
