Linear Measures produced by Mike Linacre


The Health Care Finance Administration (HCFA) has recently approved Rasch "paired comparison" methodology for the identification of misvalued procedures, see Total Physician Work. Leon L. Thurstone perceived the necessity that measures be independent of sampling and testing specifics. Measures based on paired comparisons meet this criterion. Bradley and Terry proposed this model but from a descriptive, rather than measurement, perspective. Consequently, they noticed, but did not capitalize on, the linearity of the measures produced. Georg Rasch perceived the linearity of measures produced from ordinal data by logit-linear models.

Since mathematical expression of such models obscures their immediate utility and ease of application, they are illustrated here by a simple paired comparison analysis of NCAA game outcomes. Obvious advantages include:
(a) all teams are ranked, not just the favored few
(b) all teams are located on a linear measurement scale
(c) all teams are given equal attention
(d) the data are easy to obtain, even for non-experts
(e) rare, idiosyncratic results can be indentified, and, even if left unremedied, produce minimal distortion.
(f) it is noticeable, in these data, that the conventional ranking services pay too much attention to won-loss record - and even particular wins and losses (the immediate details), and not enough to strength of schedule (the big picture).
