Find k for k-fold cross-validation

Description

This function is specifically for determining k in the context of factor analysis using change in RMSEA as the criterion for identifying the optimal factor model.

Usage

find_k(
  variables,
  n,
  p,
  m = NULL,
  max.k = 10,
  min.n = 200,
  rmsea0 = 0.05,
  rmseaA = 0.08,
  ...
)

Arguments

variables

a data.frame (or convertible to a data.frame) with variables to factor analyze in columns and observations in rows.

n

integer; number of observations. Ignored if variables is provided.

p

integer; number of variables to factor analyze. Ignored ifvariables is provided.

m

integer; maximum number of factors expected to be extracted from variables. Default is p / 4 (i.e., 4 variables per factor).

max.k

integer; maximum number of folds. Default is 10. NULL indicates no maximum.

min.n

integer; minimum sample size per fold. Default is 200 based on simulations from Curran et al. (2003).

rmsea0

numeric; RMSEA under the null hypothesis.

rmseaA

numeric; RMSEA under the alternative hypothesis.

...

other arguments passed to findRMSEAsamplesize.

Value

named vector with the number of folds, sample size suggested by the power analysis, and the actual sample size used for determining k.
