Non-metric PLS path modling: integration into the labour market of sapienza graduates


  • Francesca Petrarca


Non-Metric Partial Least Squares Path Modeling is a recent methodology based on the concept of Optimal Scaling applied to PLS Path Modeling algorithms. We adopted Non-Metric PLS Path Modeling to analyse a large administrative dataset containing nominal and ordinal variables using a specialized R package now available. We suggest a model in order to perform a preliminary quantitative study of the job success of Sapienza University of Rome graduates in terms of quality of work.
