The Structural Model Interpretation of the NESS Test [chapter]

Richard A. Baldwin, Eric Neufeld
2004 Lecture Notes in Computer Science  
Halpern and Pearl provide a definition of actual causality in the mathematical language of structural models that yields counterintuitive results in certain scenarios.  ...  To handle such situations, Wright defined the NESS Test of causal contribution, described as a formalization of the concept underlying common intuitions of causal attribution.  ...  Acknowledgements This research was supported by the second author's NSERC Discovery Grant and a University of Saskatchewan Graduate Scholarship.  ...

On the other hand, on the basis of the scree plot, one would rather opt for a two-factor structure. Furthermore, both the one-factor and two-factor solu- tions are meaningful and interpretable.  ...  GEUENS AND De PELSMACKER 303 In view of the size of the variance explained by the first factor, the findings seem to suggest that one dominant factor underlies the structure of the EIS.  ...

DISCUSSION AND CONCLUSIONS In this analysis I have attempted to interpret the conceptual structure of disease for Guate- malan-Spanish speakers and American-English speakers.  ...  The INDSCAL model accounted for 87% of the variance in two dimensions, in- dicating a high agreement between the two groups in terms of their common dimensions.  ...

In addition, a nested series of invariance tests showed that all para- meters of the three-factor model cross-validated across samples.  ...  Results of the present study showed that specific content areas may not be clearly represented in the test structure as there was little difference in goodness of fit between two- or three-factor structures  ...

Moreover, the simulations demonstrate that the QAP good- ness-of-fit test is inappropriate as a statistical test to the class of models that Hubert and Golledge recommended.  ...  More attention should be place on the conditions under which a permutation model is reasonable or interpretable, given the structure of the data. This paper hopes to make a start in that direction.  ...

Using this model to predict NESs, we demonstrate improved performance over PSSM and GLAM2 models, but do not achieve the performance of the state-of-the-art NES predictor LocNES.  ...  Our findings illustrate that over 30% of NESs are best described by novel NES classes rather than the 6-10 classes proposed by current/existing models.  ...  NSERC discovery grant played no role in the design of the study, collection, analysis or interpretation of data, nor in the writing of the manuscript.  ...
