The R package agrmt calculates agreement in ordered rating scales. It principally implements Cees van der Eijk's (2001) measure of agreement A, which can be used to describe agreement, consensus, or polarization among respondents. The package also include a range of other functions to calculate agreement, consensus, or polarization.
The following functions are available in the package: agreement, polarization, ordinal dispersion, AJUS classification, ISD classification, and (multiple) modes. The package also includes alternative and related measures to Van der Eijk's: measures of consensus (dispersion) by Leik, Tatsle and Wierman, Blair and Lacy, Kvalseth, and Berry and Mielke.
There is an implementation of van der Eijk's agreement for Stata available from Alejandro Ecker: ideas.repec.org/c/boc/bocode/s457287.html.
