mcChi {cocorresp}R Documentation

Standardised chi-square residuals

Description

Scales a matrix, Y, to its standardised chi-square residuals (o - e) / sqrt(e) (if R_0 = R, where R contains the row sums of matrix Y) so that further analysis can be unweighted

Usage

mcChi(Y, R0, eps = 1e-06)

Arguments

Y

a matrix for which standardised chi-square residuals are to be calculated.

R0

row weights.

eps

tolerance - leave as default.

Details

This function implements equation 8 of ter Braak and Schaffers (2004) by firstly applying equation 7 to form matrix Q using row and column sums of Y as weights, and, secondly, by applying equation 8 to form a matrix of standardised chi-square residuals from Q by pre-multiplication of Q by sqrt(R0) and post-multiplication of Q by sqrt(K), where K is the column sums of Y.

Value

A list with the following components:

Ychi

the matrix of standardised chi-squared residuals of Y

Kn

the column sums (K) of Y divided by sum(K)

Note

This function is not intended for casual use by users.
