The Invariance Problem in Factor Analysis
Guilford, J. P.
Educational and Psychological Measurement, 37, 1, 11-19, Spr 77
The accuracy of the varimax and promax methods of rotation of axes in reproducing known factor matrices was examined. It was found that only when all tests are univocal, or nearly so, could one be reasonably confident that an obtained factor matrix faithfully reproduces a contrived matrix. (Author/JKS)
