  author={Michael W. Browne}
}
The use of analytic rotation in exploratory factor analysis will be examined. Particular attention will be given to situations where there is a complex factor pattern and standard methods yield poor solutions. Some little known but interesting rotation criteria will be discussed and methods for weighting variables will be examined. Illustrations will be provided using Thurstone’s 26 variable box data and other examples.
