Dear list members,
I vaguely remember something that I read or heard (don't know where, may be
dreamed) about parameter to observation ratio. Is there really such a thing?
Is it possible to stably calibrate say, 100 items with 50 persons?
Is there any rule of thumb for parameter to observation ratio?
I have read Mike's paper in RMT, where he convincingly specifies the right
number of persons for stable estimation but doesn't mention the ratio of
parameters to persons as a factor that can affect estimation.
I'd be thankful for any sources that have addressed this issue.
I was thinking of carrying out a simulation study and find out more about
Is it really worth doing?
