The elements of the correcting factor vector are calculated by dividing each principal minor obtained in step 12(a) by the one immediately before it. By definition R12 = 0 . 14(a). Obtaining I(1), the reordered partial indicator matrix following step 8. The order of the variables in this matrix will therefore be the same as in X0(1). 15(a). Calculating vector DP2 obtained in the first iteration: DP2(1) = [ DP2(1) (1) DP2(1) (2) ¼ DP2(1) (m )]¢ in which DP2(1)(j), with j = 1, 2, …, m, is the value of the synthetic indicator, obtained in the first iteration, for territory j.
