The Manifest Association Structure of the Single-Factor Model: Insights from Partial Correlations
Salgueiro, Maria de Fatima; Smith, Peter W. F.; McDonald, John W.
Psychometrika, v73 n4 p665-670 Dec 2008
The association structure between manifest variables arising from the single-factor model is investigated using partial correlations. The additional insights to the practitioner provided by partial correlations for detecting a single-factor model are discussed. The parameter space for the partial correlations is presented, as are the patterns of signs in a matrix containing the partial correlations that are not compatible with a single-factor model.
