Description

Various outputs from SPSS (version 27) FACTOR for the IDS-2 (Grob & Hagmann-von Arx, 2018), the WJIV (3 to 5 and 20 to 39 years; McGrew, LaForte, & Schrank, 2014), the DOSPERT (Frey et al., 2017; Weber, Blais, & Betz, 2002), the NEO-PI-R (Costa, & McCrae, 1992), and four simulated datasets (baseline, case_1a, case_6b, and case_11b, see test_models and population_models) used in Grieder and Steiner (2020).

Format

A list of 9 containing EFA results for each of the data sets mentioned above. Each of these nine entries is a list of 4 or 8 (see details), of the following structure:

paf_comm

(vector) - The final communalities obtained with the FACTOR algorithm with PAF and no rotation. For details, see Grieder and Grob (2019).

paf_load

(matrix) - F1 to FN = unrotated factor loadings obtained with the FACTOR algorithm with PAF. Rownames are the abbreviated subtest names.

paf_iter

(numeric) - Number of iterations needed for the principal axis factoring to converge.

var_load

(matrix) - F1 to FN = varimax rotated factor loadings obtained with the FACTOR algorithm with PAF. Rownames are the abbreviated subtest names.

pro_load

(matrix) - F1 to FN = promax rotated factor loadings obtained with the FACTOR algorithm with PAF. Rownames are the abbreviated subtest names.

pro_phi

(matrix) - F1 to FN = intercorrelations of the promax rotated loadings.

sl

(matrix) - g = General / second order factor of the Schmid-Leiman solution. F1 to FN = First order factors of the Schmid-Leiman solution. h2 = Communalities of the Schmid-Leiman solution. This Schmid-Leiman solution was found using the SPSS Syntax provided by Wolff and Preising (2005).

L2

(matrix) - Second order loadings used for the Schmid-Leiman transformation. This Schmid-Leiman solution was found using the SPSS Syntax provided by Wolff and Preising (2005).

Details

The IDS-2, the two WJIV, the DOSPERT, and the NEO-PI-R contain all the above entries, while the four simulated datasets contain only paf_load, var_load, pro_load, and pro_phi.
