Suppose a set P of N subjects,p 1p N , are observed with respect to n variables v 1v n , where each variable has an ordered range A k = {1, 2,⋯, α k } (k = 1,⋯,n)(α k ≥ 2). 1,2,⋯, αk are the categories of the kth variable. Moreover, suppose the order of the categories 1,⋯,αk within each range is determined by some external (content) criterion (for example, success in achievements, positive attitude toward a given object, etc.).
