Moment estimate for the preference parameter of the IHG distribution

Description

Compute the moment estimate of the preference parameter of the IHG distribution. This preliminary estimate is set as initial value within the optimization procedure for an IHG model fitting the observed frequencies.

Arguments

m

Number of ordinal categories

freq

Vector of the absolute frequency distribution of the categories
