Summary: Factor Analysis is a statistical technique which can be useful in identifying the underlying structure of data sets and if that didn’t make much sense to you then this might well be the book you need. Using simple, entertaining and practical examples, this introductory text takes you through a number of studies to help explain the basic idea behind Factor Analysis and how to use it as well as exploring some of the common pitfalls that users come up against. The examples employ IBM’s SPSS™ software but the studies should be useful to uses of other software packages. You will be able to download the data to try out the analyses yourself on this website.
