Narrated Presentation

Exploratory Factor Analysis (EFA) is a statistical procedure that investigates patterns of variation across multiple variables to identify groups of variables that provide similar responses. EFA can be used for data reduction purposes (Principal Component Analysis) or to identify the latent constructs or the dimensions that underlie the data (Common Factor Analysis). The following presentation provides a brief introduction to the topic of EFA and provides an example of common factor analysis.
