iwcombinpmatr {ConsRank} | R Documentation |

## Item-weighted Combined input matrix of a data set

### Description

Compute the item-weighted Combined input matrix of a data set as defined by Albano and Plaia (2021)

### Usage

```
iwcombinpmatr(X, w, Wk = NULL)
```

### Arguments

`X` |
A data matrix N by M, in which there are N judges and M objects to be judged. Each row is a ranking of the objects which are represented by the columns. Alternatively X can contain the rankings observed only once. In this case the argument Wk must be used |

`w` |
A M-dimensional row vector (individually weighted items), or a M by M matrix (item similarities) |

`Wk` |
Optional: the frequency of each ranking in the data |

### Value

The M by M item-weighted combined input matrix
