Or something other than >FA/PCA?No, I'm following the research of people like Rod McDonald (retired tohis beloved Sydney), Albert Maydeu-Olivares (Barcelona) and BudMcCallum(UNC-Chapel Hill), who support the use of the Unweighted Least Squares criterion function, or multi-stage estimation methods that uses ULS followed by a few iterations of ML or GLS. ULS is mathematically equivalent to MINRES. Stata doesn't have ULS/MINRES (alas). One of the downsides to ULS is the fact that it doesn't generate standard errors and GoF statistics, but Albert's been rectifying thatsituation in a sequence of articles in various journals(Psychometrika,JASA, etc.): http://www.ub.edu/gdne/psicometriaen.html. * * For searches and help try: * http://www.stata.com/help.cgi?search * http://www.stata.com/support/statalist/faq * http://www.ats.ucla.edu/stat/stata/
