Factor Analysis and PCA
Reduce large number of variables into fewer number of factors
Co-variation is due to latent variable that exert casual influence on observed variables
Communalities – each variable’s variance that can be explained by factors
Types of Factoring
• PCA – maximum variance for 1st factor; removes that and uses maximum for 2nd factor and so on…
• Common Factor Analysis – Same as factor analysis (only common variance – used in CFA)
• Image Factoring – correlation matrix; uses OLS regression matrix
• Maximum Likelihood Method – on correlation matrix
• Alpha Factoring
• Weight Square
Estimate communalities - each variable’s variance that can be explained by factor.
See factors are retained
Factor rotation - Procedure in which the eigenvectors (factors) are rotated in an attempt to achieve simple structure.
Factor loading - Relation of each variable to the underlying factor. Output of a simple factor analysis looking at indicators of wealth, with just six variables and two resulting factors
6 variables: Income, education, occupation, house value, public parks and crimes
2 factors: individual socioeconomic status and neighborhood socioeconomic status
Factor Score – if value of variables are given then factor values can be predicted

This webinar discusses the use of regression models that include both quantitative and categorical predictive factors. It begins with a discussion of the use of indicator variables in models with a single X and then moves on to multiple regression models. The inclusion of categorical factors in nonlinear regression, logistic regression, and life data regression is also considered.
The webinar will be of interest to anyone who deals with data that is divided into groups and wishes to test whether regression relationships differ significantly between the groups. It will also be of interest to analysts who are developing predictive models that involve both quantitative and non-quantitative factors.

Principal component regression involves two steps. In the step 1 , predictor variables are combined through PCA algorithms (to create composite variables). Then these composite variables are used in the regression analysis instead of the original predictor variables.

NOTE: somewhere in the video I say you can compute mean and standard deviations of the estimated factor scores. Well, you can, but it;s not meaningful. To see how people scored on a factor, a histogram or QQ plot would do.

What it is?
The purpose of exploratory factor analysis is to reduce a larger set of questions into a number of factors of sub-dimensions. Imagine me getting all the students grades to my class for all their assessments, and then using an EFA to break them down into different factors, which may be “excellent students”, “moderate achievers”, “borderline passers” and “apathetic failers”.
Why do we do it?
We do it as usually we have sub-dimensions nested within an over-arching dimension or construct. We don’t usually know what these dimensions are yet though, so let the computer guide us, along with our judgement. For my PhD a component of this involved discerning the types of emotions consumer’s experience when they are exposed to an innovation. I started with about 60, and use EFA to reduce it down to a preliminary amount of about 30, spread across three factors or dimensions of emotions that related to eachother, but were distinct from the emotions of the other factors. We can then use these factor scores in regression analysis or other things such as grouping variables or mean analysis.
How do we do it?
To do this, we select ANALYZE, DIMENSION REDUCTION, then FACTOR.
We move over into the “variables” window the items (variables) we want to assess. We then select rotation, and in this case select Direct Oblimin. This is an Oblique rotation used because it is likely the items we are using are related to each other. If we used a bunch of items that are not related to each other, for example age, income, purchase history, etc. than an Orthogonalized rotation such as Varimax is advised.
We can then hit Ok and run the analysis.
The output we want to view is the Eigenvalues table. Eigenvalues purely indicate how many factors SPSS has extracted. We want to explain as much variance in the data as possible, but only if our factors make sense and we don’t have too many. If an eigenvalue is above 1, then good to keep. In this case Explaining 71.04% of variance with 3 factors is good.
We then move to the Pattern Matrix (as we are using Direct oblimin). I believe the Structure Matrix is viewed most commonly for Varimax rotation. Looking at this table shows our key results with the number of factors extracted expressed through the number of columns. And the items that belong to that factor on the left. However, this is a mess, and virtually illegible. We need to make the output easier to read.
Going back to our analysis we select Options, and select Sorted by size, and then Suppress small coefficients below .300. Now the output will be much cleaner.
From here we can see distinct factors emerging, with the items that belong within each of those factors. The numbers represent associations with other items, think of them like correlations. We can see that the items WITHIN a factor are strongly associated with other items within the factor, but show no association with items of other factors. This is because we have supressed any below .300. You could turn this off and would find a bunch, but they are negligible. The general rule of thumb is that you want an item to have an association of at least twice its largest association with any item of another factor, and be at least .600. This means that any association outside of the factor of .300 or above is problematic. By supressing those smaller than .300, we can be confident here that we have a clean EFA.
The items of the factor reveal three sub-dimensions. It is up to the researcher to interpret these by closely reading the items, and naming them with a name that explains the underlying dimension. Factor 1 may be “Spare Resources for their Pet”, whilst factor 3 may be “Crazy Pet Person”.
With such analysis, we always need to let good theory and conceptual insight decide our analysis. If we have a bunch of items in a factor that don’t seem to relate to eachother and are contradictory, perhaps statistically they make sense but not conceptually. This is not good. We may need to try removing items and seeing how the results come out again. Similarly if we have an item that crossloads strongly with other items, remove it, run again and review.
EFA is an iterative an exploratory process that may require several rounds of analysis, reducing the number of items or potential dimensions as we go. There is no objectively correct answer for how the items should load.

Video Transcript: In this video we'll take a look at how to run a factor analysis or more specifically we'll be running a principal components analysis in SPSS. And as we begin here it's important to note, because it can get confusing in the field, that factor analysis is an umbrella term where the whole subject area is known as factor analysis but within that subject there's two types of main analyses that are run. The first type is called principal components analysis and that's what we'll be running in SPSS today. And the other type is known as common factor analysis and you'll see that come up sometimes. But in my experience principal components analysis is the most commonly used procedure and it's also the default procedure in SPSS. And if you look on the screen here you can see there's five variables: SWLS 1, 2 3, 4 and 5. And what these variables are they come from the items of the Satisfaction with Life Scale published by Diener et al. And what people do is they take these five items they respond to the five items where SLWS1 is "In most ways my life is close to my ideal;" and then we have "The conditions of my life are excellent;" "I am satisfied with my life;" "So far I've gotten the important things I want in life;" and then SWLS5 is "If I could live my life over I would change almost nothing." So what happens is the people respond to these five questions or items and for each question they have the following responses, which I've already input here into SPSS value labels: strongly disagree all the way through strongly agree, which gives us a 1 through 7 point scale for each question. So what we want to do here in our principal components analysis is we want to go ahead and analyze these five variables or items and see if we can reduce these five variables or items into one or a few components or factors which explain the relationship among the variables. So let's go ahead and start by running a correlation matrix and what we'll do is we're going to Analyze, Correlate, Bivariate, and then we'll move these five variables over. Go ahead and click OK and then here notice we get the correlation matrix of SWLS1 through SWLS5. So these are all the intercorrelations that we have here. And if we look at this off-diagonal where these ones here are the diagonal. And they're just a one because of variable is correlated with itself so that's always 1.0. And then the off-diagonal here represents the correlations of the items with one another. So for example this .531 here; notice it says in SPSS that the correlation is significant at the .01 level, two tailed. So this here is the correlation between SWLS2 and SLWS1. So all of these in this triangle here indicate the correlation between the different variables or items on the Satisfaction with Life Scale. And what we want to see here in factor analysis which we're about to run is that these variables are correlated with one another and at a minimum significantly so. Because what factor analysis or principal components analysis does is that it analyzes the correlations or relationships between our variables and basically we try to determine a smaller number of variables that can explain these correlations. So notice here we're starting with five variables, SWLS1 through five. Well hopefully in this analysis when we run our factor analysis we'll come out with one component that does a good job of explaining all these correlations here. And one of the key points of factor analysis is it's a data reduction technique. What that means is we enter a certain number of variables, like five in this example, or even 20 or 50 or what have you, and we hope to reduce those variables down to just a few; between one and let's say 5 or 6 is most of the solutions that I see. Now in this case since we have five variables we really want to reduce this down to 1 or 2 at most but 1 would be good in this case. So that's really a key point of factor analysis: we take a number of variables and we try to explain the correlations between those variables through a smaller number of factors or components and by doing that what we do is we get more parsimonious solution, a more succinct solution that explains these variables or relationships. And there's a lot of applications of factor analysis but one of the primary ones is when you're analyzing scales or items on a scale and you want to see how that scale turns out, so how many dimensions or factors doesn't it have to it.

Structural equation modeling (SEM), as a concept, is a combination of statistical techniques such as exploratory factor analysis and multiple regression.
The purpose of SEM is to examine a set of relationships between one or more Independent Variables (IV) and one or more Dependent Variables (DV).
Structural equation modeling is also known as ‘causal modeling’ or ‘analysis of covariance structures’.
Path analysis and confirmatory factor analysis (CFA) are special types of SEM

In this video, we look at how to run an exploratory factor analysis (principal components analysis) in SPSS (Part 6 of 6).
Video Transcript: 78% of the variance, approximately, is accounted for in SWLS3 by that component. 65% of the variance is accounted for in SWLS4 by the component, and 50%, or half of the variance, is accounted for by that component in SWLS5. So these are all very good in practice, and 78% is really, very very high. And SWLS3 once again is "I'm satisfied with my life," that question. So this is a measure of the amount of variance accounted for, once again, in the individual items by the component. And in a one-component solution, it's just literally, the component loading squared. In solutions with two or more components, it gets a little more complicated, so you can't just square the component loadings and get that. But in a one component solution, it's a direct translation, so that's very nice. Now one other thing, when we're naming a factor or a component, we have to go ahead and name those components, because they don't come out with a name, all we know is that we have one component. So our job is to name that. And what we would do is we would look at each of these items, look at the actual text in those items, what is it that they're measuring, and then see which items load high on this component. And the items that load high would give us a good indication as to what that component's measuring. We would literally read those items, see what it is that they're measuring, and then what those items have in common, that's what we would name the component. Now in this case all of the items load very high on the component, so they're all contributing. But if we just look at the highest one for a moment, .89, SWLS3, once again SWLS3 is "I am satisfied with my life." So we could say this is life satisfaction. That's exactly what this is, it's the Satisfaction with Life Scale. And the other items too they all measure life satisfaction in one way or another. Just as a couple here, number one, once again "In most ways my life is close to my ideal." Number two is "The conditions of my life are excellent," and so on. So all these items are really getting at life satisfaction. But if one of these was very low, for example, SWLS5, then we wouldn't want to use that item in contributing to naming the component. So typically we close in factor analysis after getting all of our values, determining how many components to extract or retain, we look at our loadings and then we want to name our components. OK that's it for now. This concludes the presentation on running a principal components analysis in SPSS. Thanks for watching.
