## Marcotorchino's index for three-way contingency tables under Scenario 1

### Description

It provides the partition of the Marcotorchino's index and its related \$C_M\$-statistic under the Scenario 1 when probabilities are homogeneous.

### Usage

```tau3scen1(X, pi=rep(1/dim(X)[],dim(X)[]), pj=rep(1/dim(X)[],dim(X)[]),
pk=rep(1/dim(X)[],dim(X)[]), digits = 3)
```

### Arguments

 `X` The three-way contingency table. `pi` The input parameter for specifying the theoretical probabilities of rows categories. When `scen = 1`, they can be prescribed by the analyst. By default, they are set equal among the categories, homogeneous margins (uniform probabilities), that is `pi = rep(1/dim(X)[],dim(X)[])`. `pj` The input parameter for specifying the theoretical probabilities of columns categories. When `scen = 1`, they can be prescribed by the analyst. By default, they are set equal among the categories, homogeneous margins (uniform probabilities), that is `pj = rep(1/dim(X)[],dim(X)[])`. `pk` The input parameter for specifying the theoretical probabilities of tube categories. When `scen = 1`, they can be prescribed by the analyst. By default, they are set equal among the categories, homogeneous margins (uniform probabilities), that is `pk = rep(1/dim(X)[],dim(X)[])`. `digits` The minimum number of decimal places, `digits`, used for displaying the numerical summaries of the analysis. By default, `digits = 3`.

### Value

Description of the output returned

 `z` The partition of the Marcotorchino's index, of the \$C_M\$-statistic and its revised formula, under Scenario 1. We get seven terms partitioning the Marcotorchino's index and the related \$C_M\$-statistic: three main terms, two bivariate terms and a trivariate term. The output is in a matrix, the six rows of this matrix indicate the tau index numerator, the tau index, the percentage of explained inertia, the \$C_M\$-statistic, the degree of freedom, the p-value, respectively.

### Note

This function belongs to the class `chi3class`.
