holzinger19: Psychometric example data set by Holzinger & Swineford (1936)

Description Usage References


19 ability measurements from the classic psychometrics data set of Holzinger and Swineford (1939). The original data set contains 24 variables, however, we excluded the last four to obtain an example data set for four factors (see Harman, 1967). We took this dataset from the R-package psychTools (Revelle & Revelle, 2020).
