On Equivariance and Invariancy of Standard Errors in Three Exploratory Factor Models.
Yuan, Ke-Hai; Bentler, Peter M.
Psychometrika, v65 n1 p121-33 Mar 2000
Studied whether the standard z-statistic that evaluates whether a factor loading is statistically necessary is correctly applied in such situations and more generally when the variables being analyzed are arbitrarily rescaled. An example illustrates that neither the factor loading estimates nor the standard error estimates possess scale equivariance or invariance. (SLD)
