Factor Analysis by MINRES To the memory of

  title={Factor Analysis by MINRES To the memory of},
  author={Harry Harman and Henry Kaiser},
The basic idea of exploratory factor analysis is the following. For a given set of observed response variables one wants to find a set of latent factors, fewer in number than the observed variables. These factors are supposed to account for the intercorrelations of the response variables in the sense that when the factors are partialed out from the observed variables, there should no longer remain any correlations between these. The term exploratory means that one does not know how many factors… CONTINUE READING
