Modelos factoriales para datos longitudinales con estructuras comunes y especificas

Metodología de las Ciencias del Comportamiento 01/2004; Sup..


One of the most useful techniques to analyse latent structures is exploratory Factor Analysis. When several data matrices, arising from different occasions and/or groups, are obtained, the comparison and integration of the resulting latent spaces is an important task. In this paper we propose a factor model for several groups that includes shared common factors for all the groups and specific factors for each group. Shared common factors are obtained from the common directions of the separated latent subspaces and specific factors from the residuals after projecting the group onto the common subspace

    ABSTRACT: Australian and New Zealand environmental economists have played a significant role in the development of concepts and their application across three fields within their subdiscipline: non-market valuation, institutional economics and bioeconomic modelling. These contributions have been spurred on by debates within and outside the discipline. Much of the controversy has centred on the validity of valuations generated through the application of stated preference methods such as contingent valuation. Suggestions to overcome some shortcomings in the work of environmental economists include the commissioning of a sequence of non-market valuation studies to fill existing gaps to improve the potential for benefit transfer.

    ABSTRACT: There is a truism about applied research that an inadequate concept of change leads to diminished or misguided applied research. Hence this paper urges distinguishing kinds of change, distinctions which are suggested by experience and also are supported with evidence generated by exotic statistical and computational techniques in which we have been engaged. An immediate pay-off of making such distinctions is more definite reliance on existing research findings, whose interpretation is necessarily related to their underlying concept of change. More central still, the goal is to facilitate the design and evaluation of efforts to improve the human condition and the quality of life, especially in organizations.Initially, conceptual clarification of "change" will show that at least three kinds seem distinguishable. Later, data from a study of a "successful" Flexi-Time intervention will be used to test these conceptual clarifications. Detailed statistical analysis will support the broad position that a unitary concept of change is inappropriate and may be seriously misleading.

    ABSTRACT: This article generalizes the method of principal components to so-called “common principal components” as follows: Consider the hypothesis that the covariance matrices Σi for k populations are simultaneously diagonalizable. That is, there is an orthogonal matrix β such that β' Σiβ is diagonal for i = 1, …, k. I derive the normal-theory maximum likelihood estimates of the common component Σi matrices and the log-likelihood-ratio statistics for testing this hypothesis. The solution has some favorable properties that do not depend on normality assumptions. Numerical examples illustrate the method. Applications to data reduction, multiple regression, and nonlinear discriminant analysis are sketched.
