Make sure you look at the note of caution in -help factor-:

"  bootstrap, by, jackknife, rolling, and statsby are allowed with factor;
see prefix.  However, bootstrap and
      jackknife results should be interpreted with caution; identification
of the factor parameters involves
      data-dependent restrictions, possibly leading to badly biased and
overdispersed estimates.
    Weights are not allowed with the bootstrap prefix."

Betreff: st: bootstrap in factor analysis

Dear all,

I would like to test the whether the factor loadings in factor analysis
(based on the rotated factor solution) by using the traditional
bootstrapping methods. However, I could not figure out how to write the
bootstrap within the factor analysis or the rotate function.

Could anyone kindly help?

Many thanks,

Yours sincerely,
