1999; Widaman, 1993). This is because in common factor analysis, random error is removed from the factors. , PCA does not differentiate common and unique variance). 80). Because factor correlations arising from common factor analysis are more likely to be closer to population values, this is another reason why methodologists usually advocate EFA over PCA. 4, using a real data set of eight indicators collected from a sample of 500 participants. A scree test and parallel analysis suggest a two-factor solution.
Thus two factors cannot be extracted from the data by ML when p = 4. , the correlation matrix with communality estimates in the diagonal). ”6 Most multivariate procedures such as EFA rely on eigenvalues and their corresponding eigenvectors because they summarize variance in a given correlation or variance–covariance matrix. The calculation of eigenvalues and eigenvectors is beyond the scope of this chapter (for an informative illustration, see Tabachnick & Fidell, 2013), but for practical purposes, it is useful to view eigenvalues as representing the variance in the indicators explained by the successive factors.
Factors that are represented by two or three indicators may be underdetermined (have poor determinacy; see below) and highly unstable across replications. , method effects arising from subsets of very similarly worded or reverse-worded items; see Chapter 5). It is also important to note that the number of factors (m) that can be extracted by EFA is limited by the number of observed measures (p) that are submitted to the analysis. The upper limit on the number of factors varies across estimation techniques.
