RE: st: RE: Linear Composites
You are thus hovering on the margin.
A linear composite given variables x_j
I would understand to be a sum of terms
b_j * x_j
including the possibility that it is
convenient to define some x_0 as identically 1.
If you know the b_j, you can calculate a composite
If you don't know the b_j, you need to estimate
them, and -regress- is the most obvious way.
