It doesn't really go into our methodology. That's not why we created it.
What you're trying to do is *really* hard and will take huge amounts
of preparation and some massively impressive statistics horsepower. I
know because we've tried multiple times and only managed to pull it
off some of the time.
There are scaling and ground issues. Ground issues are about
connecting the independent data collection points to a common element,
so you can say that these measures are talking about the same thing.
Scaling issues are about ensuring that Good/Bad in one scale mean the
same as Good/Bad in another scale.
This is very heavy duty science you're trying to do. I'm betting, if
you want to do it well, it will triple-to-quintuple your research costs.
I'm betting that's why you've not found a lot of resources on it. You
need a deep pocket to make it really work.
