‒

Factoring Method as Maximum Likelihood

‒

Prior Communality as Common Factor Analysis

‒

Rotation Method as Varimax

The report lists the communality estimates, variance, significance tests, rotated factor loadings, and a factor loading plot. Note that in the Factor Loading Plot, Factor 1 relates to the Carbon TetrachlorideChloroformBenzeneHexane cluster of variables, and Factor 2 relates to the Ether–1Octanol cluster of variables. See Factor Analysis Model Fit Options for details of the information shown in the report.
Launch the Factor Analysis platform by selecting Analyze > Consumer Research > Factor Analysis. This example uses the Solubility.jmp sample data table.
Lists different methods for fitting the model. For details about the methods, see the Multivariate chapter in the Multivariate Methods book.
Lists the scaling methods for performing the factor analysis based on Correlations (the same as Principal Components), Covariances, or Unscaled.
