Eine nichtlineare Analyse der sozioökonomischen Entwicklung von Nationen
Journal of Contextual Economics – Schmollers Jahrbuch, Vol. 107 (1987), Iss. 3 : pp. 417–430
Principal components can be used to represent essential dimensions of multidimensional socioeconomic notions of development. Here, a quadratic generalized analysis of principal components is performed when comparing the state of development for different nations. As a result, development turns out to be multidimensional indeed. Special dimensions of development are introduced by interactions between original indicators for development and underdevelopment, respectively.
