Exploratory factor analysis (EFA; Bartholomew, ) is a data-driven, exploratory method for determining the number of common factors underlying a response set as well as the relationship between individual items and those common factors (Fabrigar, Wegener. Factor analysis examines the inter-correlations that exist between a large number of items (questionnaire responses) and in doing so reduces the items into smaller groups, known as factors. These factors contain correlated variables and are typically quite similar in terms of content or meaning. Unlike other methods discussed in this book, exploratory factor analysis .

Describes, in detail, exploratory data analysis techniques from the univariate to the multivariate ones; Features a complete description of correspondence analysis and factor analysis techniques as multidimensional statistical data analysis techniques, illustrated with concrete and understandable examples. • the way the techniques and their differences are treated in statistics books and online resources, and • the way that EFA and PCA are implemented in software. PRINCIPAL COMPONENT ANALYSIS AND EXPLORATORY FACTOR ANALYSIS Principal component analysis The idea of PCA is the representation of a high-dimensional dataset by a linear low-.

This volume provides a solid foundation in exploratory factor analysis (EFA), which along with confirmatory factor analysis, represents one of the two major strands in this field. The book lays out the mathematical foundations of EFA; explores the range of methods for extracting the initial factor structure; explains factor rotation; and. A second confirmatory factor analysis was conducted restricting each item to load only on its corresponding scale. The GFI indicated a fit of, the TLI indicated a fit of, and the CFI indicated a fit of In addition, a five factor confirmatory factor analytic solution fit the data better than a four, three, or one factor solution.
