This paper considers the problem of using a subset of variables to account for a maximum amount of variance in the entire set. An approximate solution for the best possible subset of any given size is presented and theorems related to obtaining equivalent solutions are given. A variation on the method is pre- sented as a partial answer to the problem of defining common and unique variance in a solution without communalities.
