Exploratory factor analysis (EFA) is a method of identifying the number and nature of latent variables that explain the variation and covariation in a set of measured variables. In this course you will learn how to make decisions in building an EFA model – including what model to use. You will also learn why principal components analysis (PCA) as a method of factoring can serve different goals. Some prior knowledge of modeling will be helpful.
This course will be taught by instructors at The Institute, however an instructor for this course has not been chosen at this juncture.
