Configural Frequency Analysis as a Statistical Tool for Defining Types
Lienert, G. A.; Krauth, J.
Educational and Psychological Measurement, 35, 2, 231-8, Sum 75
Configural frequency analysis (CFA), a new method for identifying types, is illustrated numerically. Relations to latent class analysis and to factor analysis are discussed. It is suggested to use CFA as a type-defining method instead of factor analysis if the variables are linked not only by first but also by higher-order associations. (RC)
