The Incorrect Measurement of Components
Halperin, Silas
Educational and Psychological Measurement, 36, 2, 347-53, Sum 76
Component analysis provides an attractive alternative to factor analysis, since component scores are easily determined while factor scores can only be estimated. The correct method of determining component scores is presented as well as several illustrations of how commonly used incorrect methods distort the meaning of the component solution. (RC)
