Whichever form the linear combination takes, however, the variables should be standardized first so that one variable with high dispersion does not overwhelm the others. The simplest user-defined composite is simply the mean of the variables. In this case, ai = 1/k, i = 1, 2, . . , k. However, if the analyst has prior information or expert knowledge available to indicate that the variables should not all be weighted equally, each coefficient ai can be chosen to reflect the relative weight of that variable, with more important variables receiving higher weights.

98 as we estimated above for the new cereal with 1 gram of sugar. 1. 1 is pointing to a location on the regression line directly above the Cheerios point. This is where the regression equation predicted the nutrition rating to be for a cereal with a sugar content of 1 gram. 215 rating points, which represents the vertical distance from the Cheerios data point to the regression line. 215 rating points, in general y − yˆ , is known variously as the prediction error, estimation error, or residual.

This rotation method is called oblique because the axes are no longer required to be at 90◦ , but may form an oblique angle. For more on oblique rotation methods, see Harmon [9]. USER-DEFINED COMPOSITES Factor analysis continues to be controversial, in part due to the lack of invariance under transformation and the consequent nonuniqueness of the factor solutions. Analysts may prefer a much more straightforward alternative: user-defined composites. A 24 CHAPTER 1 DIMENSION REDUCTION METHODS user-defined composite is simply a linear combination of the variables which combines several variables into a single composite measure.
