Aleamoni, Lawrence M.
Educational and Psychological Measurement, 36, 4, 879-83, Win 76
Studies concerning the relation of sample size to the number of variables in factor analysis are reviewed. It is noted that constraints imposed on the dimensionality of the variables by having fewer observations than variables are not mentioned in the literature. Suggestions for resolution of the problem are made. (Author/JKS)
