The Techniques of Simple Structure Rotation

  • Raymond B. Cattell


The preceding chapter has stated the general aims and styles of rotation. In this chapter we shall concentrate entirely on the practical techniques of obtaining a resolution on the simple structure principle, because, until confactor rotation is perfected, it is likely to remain the sole dependable principle in hypothesis-producing factor analysis. In any case, where the obtaining of suitable mutually related groups for confactor is not possible, and wherever for any reason one is confined to a single experiment, simple structure remains the one dependable everyday method of reaching the hidden unique resolution.
