In such an examination the factor scores for each factor would be compared with the occurrence of obsidian at each data point. The relative goodness-of-fit obtained for each of these factors would in turn determine their utility as cost-distance estimators.

While these analyses are based on the work of Hodder (1974:172-189; Hodder and Orton 1976), they differ from that work in terms of the models tested.
