  1. I do not understand the calculation of weight \beta_j .. Please correct me if I am wrong – j (= 1,…,6) denotes the 6 dimensions. So, if I pick the first dimension (j = 1) which is infrastructure, it has 4 different attributes. You choose the principal component out of these 4 attributes and the explained variance of this principal component is reported as the explained variance of infrastructure (\lambda_1) in Table 2 (right ?).. now, coming to the calculation of \beta_1 (1 denoting infrastructure), can you please explain what is the sum running over? if it is running over j, it does not make any sense since the RHS is dependent on k alone, in that matter .. Kindly explain the calculations of weights. Also, I do not understand how the weights of each of the 4 individual attributes under infrastructure were calculated in Table 3.
