These assumptions are that E(F) = 0, Cov(F) = I, E(ε) = 0, and Cov(ε) is a diagonal matrix. See Johnson and Wichern [4] for further elucidation of the factor analysis model. Unfortunately, the factor solutions provided by factor analysis are not invariant to transformations. Two models, X − µ = L F + ε and X − µ = (LT) (TF) + ε, where T represents an orthogonal transformations matrix, will both provide the same results. Hence, the factors uncovered by the model are in essence nonunique, without further constraints.

These component weights represent the partial correlation between a particular variable and a given component. 50 in magnitude. Note that the component weight represents the correlation between the component and the variable; thus, the squared component weight represents the amount of the variable’s total variability that is explained by the component. 50 requires that at least 25% of the variable’s variance be explained by a particular component. PCA does not extract all the variance from the variables, only that proportion of the variance that is shared by several variables.

Factor rotation corresponds to a transformation (usually, orthogonal) of the coordinate axes, leading to a different set of factor loadings. We may look upon factor rotation as analogous to a scientist attempting to elicit greater contrast and detail by adjusting the focus of a microscope. The sharpest focus occurs when each variable has high factor loadings on a single factor, with low to moderate loadings on the other factors. 013 Extraction method: principal axis factoring; two factors extracted, 152 iterations required.
