• Option is the PROC FACTOR option

METHOD=name Specifies the number of factors (n) to retain.The default is the number of variables. Specifying a number that is small relative to the number of variables can substantially decrease the amount of memory required to run PROC FACTOR, especially with oblique rotations. If the input data set is a raw data set, nobs is defined by default to be the number of observations in the raw data set. NORM=name Specifies the method for row normalization in rotation.

For example, to rescale the rows of the pattern matrix to represent covariances instead of correlations, type NORM=COV in the text box.Refer to the SAS PROC FACTOR documentation for more information.
