The Asymptotic Bias of Minimum Trace Factor Analysis, with Applications to the Greatest Lower Bound to Reliability.
Shapiro, Alexander; ten Berge, Jos M. F.
Psychometrika, v65 n3 p413-25 Sep 2000
Discusses sampling bias problems in the use of the greatest lower bound (g.l.b.) to reliability and offers explicit expressions for the second order derivatives. This yields closed form expression for the asymptotic bias of both the g.l.b. and its numerator. Illustrates the approach through a numeric example. (SLD)
