Schumacker, Randall E.; Beyerlein, Susan T.
Structural Equation Modeling, v7 n4 p629-36 2000
Used confirmatory factor analysis (CFA), hypothesized factors that were less than the number of variables, and then examined how well the intercorrelations were reproduced. Results help explain that the type of correlation matrix and estimation method affect factor loadings and fit functions. Suggests some alternative approaches. (SLD)
