Strategies for Rotating Canonical Components.
Thorndike, Robert M.
Rotation of canonical components is contrasted with factor rotation and the concept of communalities in canonical analysis is considered. Three possible strategies for rotating canonical components are described: single rotation of all components, separate rotation of each set, and sequential rotation of one set then the other. Constraints, conditions and consequences of rotation by each procedure are discussed. It is concluded that single rotation is logically inconsistent, and the other strategies may be appropriate in some situations. (Author)
