Factor Analysis via Components Analysis
Bentler, Peter M.; de Leeuw, Jan
Psychometrika, v76 n3 p461-470 Jul 2011
When the factor analysis model holds, component loadings are linear combinations of factor loadings, and vice versa. This interrelation permits us to define new optimization criteria and estimation methods for exploratory factor analysis. Although this article is primarily conceptual in nature, an illustrative example and a small simulation show the methodology to be promising.
