MacCallum, Robert C.; Widaman, Keith F.; Preacher, Kristopher J.; Hong, Sehee
Multivariate Behavioral Research, v36 n4 p611-37 2001
Examined the effects of sample size and other design features on correspondence between factors obtained from analysis of sample data and those present in the population from which the samples were drawn, examining these phenomena in the situation in which the common factor model does not hold exactly in the population. Tested a theoretical framework for representing such lack of fit and verified the study hypotheses in two samples studies. (SLD)
