The Simplified Obliquimax as a Modification of Thurstone's Method of Oblique Transformation: Its Methodology, Properties and General Nature.
Hofmann, Richard J.
The primary objectives of this paper are pedagogical: to provide a reliable semi-subjective transformation procedure that might be used without difficulty by beginning students in factor analysis; to clarify and extend the existing knowledge of oblique transformations in general; and to provide a brief but meaningful explication of the general obliquimax. Implicit in these three objectives is the fourth objective of presenting a paper that might be profitable for both the beginning student and the factor analytic theoretician. The first section, primarily background, discusses one of Thurstone's methods of determining oblique transformations. The second section discusses certain theoretical aspects of the general obliquimax to provide a basis for the development and understanding of the simplified obliquimax. Finally, the semi-subjective simplified obliquimax transformation is developed and discussed within the context of Thurstone's box problem. (Author/AE)
