ci_bod_var_w {Compind}R Documentation

Variance weighted Benefit of the Doubt approach (BoD variance weighted)

Description

Variance weighted Benefit of the Doubt approach (BoD variance weighted) is a particular form of BoD method with additional information in the optimization problem. In particular it has been added weight constraints (in form of an Assurance region type I (AR I)) endogenously determined in order to take into account the ratio of the vertical variability of each simple indicator relative to one another.

Usage

ci_bod_var_w(x,indic_col,boot_rep = 5000)

Arguments

x

A data.frame containing score of the simple indicators.

indic_col

Simple indicators column number.

boot_rep

The number of bootstrap replicates (default=5000) for the estimates of the nonparametric bootstrap (first order normal approximation) confidence intervals for the variances of the simple indicators.

Details

For more informations about the estimation of the confidence interval for the variances, please see function boot.ci, package boot.

Value

An object of class "CI". This is a list containing the following elements:

ci_bod_var_w_est

Composite indicator estimated values.

ci_method

Method used; for this function ci_method="bod_var_w".
