Re: st: How can I get a rotated version of principal components in eigenvalue normalisation? |

A brute force solution: go to return values (type -ereturn list-), identify what the vector of eigenvalues is (it's -e(Ev)- in Stata 10), and then manually scale the scores: pca <your variables here> local k = <number of scores you want to use> predict score1 - score`k' mat lambda = e(Ev) forvalues i=1/`k' { replace score`i' = score`i'*sqrt(lambda[1,`i']) } I've no idea how that will go with rotation. I personally never had much trust in rotations, anyway...
