Factor Analysis by MINRES To the memory of

  title={Factor Analysis by MINRES To the memory of},
  author={Harry H. Harman and Henry F. 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… 

Validity of the need for affect scales: Factorial structure, invariance and validity in the italian context

Maio and Esses (2001) developed an individual difference measure of the Need for Affect. This construct reflects the individual’s motivation to approach or avoid emotion-inducing situations. In the

Detecting Correlated Residuals in Exploratory Factor Analysis: New Proposals and a Comparison of Procedures

This paper discusses two existing detection approaches in the EFA context, and proposes a third, new procedure based on the concept of parallel analysis, which has been implemented in a well-known noncommercial EFA program, and an implementation in R is being developed.

Robust factor analysis in the presence of normality violations, missing data, and outliers: Empirical questions and possible solutions

Although a mainstay of psychometric methods, several reviews suggest factor analysis is often applied without testing whether data support it, and that decision-making process or guiding principles

The Affect Structure Revisited

In affective psychology, there is a persistent controversy about the number, the nature and the definition of the affect structure dimensions. Responding to the methodological criticisms addressed to

Profile of Mood States Factor Structure Does Not Accurately Account for Patients with Chronic Pain

The factor structure of the Profile of Mood States (POMS) could not be satisfactorily confirmed and other mood measures and shorter, optimized versions of the POMS are discussed as possible alternatives.

Organizational social capital Scale based on Nahapiet and Ghosal model: development and validation

The goal of this work is to develop and validate a scale to identify workers' behaviors as well as those of organizations, and to understand how they develop and build enterprise competitiveness

Adaptation and validation of a test to measure Greek elementary students' basic cycling skills

The aim of this study was to adapt a previously developed test to gain a detailed insight into the cycling skills of Greek children and examine the impact that gender, age and cycling experience have

Poziční generátor a měření sociálního kapitálu v egocentrické síti

The Position Generator (PG) represents one method of measuring egocentric social networks, and key facets of social capital. Respondents are asked if they know a person from a list of jobs that have

Development of a Work Climate Scale in Emergency Health Services

A scale to measure the quality of work climates in emergency health services (EHS) and validity evidence based on test content through experts' judgment is presented and further developments of the instrument are discussed.

Not throwing out the baby with the bathwater: lessons from the Fibromyalgia Impact Questionnaire

It is concluded that the Fibromyalgia Impact Questionnaire is a solid, worldwide-used questionnaire with a history of 20 years consisting of three domains, which is the most accurate.



A general approach to confirmatory maximum likelihood factor analysis

We describe a general procedure by which any number of parameters of the factor analytic model can be held fixed at any values and the remaining free parameters estimated by the maximum likelihood

The varimax criterion for analytic rotation in factor analysis

An analytic criterion for rotation is defined. The scientific advantage of analytic criteria over subjective (graphical) rotational procedures is discussed. Carroll's criterion and the quartimax

This text introduces the SIMPLIS command language for structural equation modelling. It is written for students and researchers with limited mathematical and statistical training who need to use

Factor analysis by instrumental variables methods

Three alternative estimation procedures for factor analysis based on the instrumental variables method are presented. These procedures are justified by the method of least squares. Formulas for
