Enumeration of the values of Zi, Zj and Xij for different values of SAi, SBi, SAj and SBj. The hidden variables are oriented in a hierarchical structure. For instance, the value of Zi depends on the values of SAi and SBi. Similarly, the value of Xij depends on the values of Zi and Zj. Thus, the value of the dependent variable Xij in turn depends on the values of four independent variables SAi, SBi, SAj and SBj.
