Chapter 9: Confirmatory Factor Analysis Prerequisites: Chapter 5, Sections 3.9, 3.10, 4.3 9.1 The Confirmatory Factor Analysis Model The difference between the models discussed in this section, and the regression model introduced in Chapter 5 is in the nature of the independent variables, and the fact that we have multiple dependent variables. Confirmatory. 12 0 obj I am running a factor analysis using ten variables. Factor loadings and factor correlations are obtained as in EFA. I have covered enough about the traditional applications of factor analysis that you will be okay if you have had little or no prior exposure to factor analysis. Confirmatory factor analysis borrows many of the same concepts from exploratory factor analysis except that instead of letting the data tell us the factor structure, we pre-determine the factor structure and perform a hypothesis test to see if this is true. 28 0 obj << Indications for further development into multifactor models and, eventually, structural equation models, will be given. ** 1. Standard methods of performing factor analysis ( i.e., those based on a matrix of Pearson’s correlations) assume that the variables are continuous and follow a multivariate normal distribution. /Length 1559 – CFA is used when the factorial structure of … However, I want to analyze the goodness of fit indices for the factors (e.g., CFI, RMSEA, factor loadings significance...). In EFA, all items load on all factors. In this portion of the seminar, we will continue with the example of the SAQ. Read more about Jeff here. The data analyst brings to the enterprise a substantial amount of intellectual baggage that affects the selection of variables, choice of a number of factors, the naming of SEM encompasses a broad array of models from linear regression to measurement models to simultaneous equations, including along the way confirmatory factor analysis (CFA), correlated uniqueness models, latent growth models, and multiple indicators and multiple causes (MIMIC). Confirmatory Factor Analysis with Missing Data 5. Factors are correlated (conceptually useful to have correlated factors). Die Entdeckung dieser voneinander unabhängigen Variablen oder Merkmale ist der Sinn des datenreduzierenden (auch dimensionsreduzierenden) Verfahrens der Faktorenanalyse. Confirmatory Factor Analysis.

Stata etc. Jeff Meyer is a statistical consultant with The Analysis Factor, a stats mentor for Statistically Speaking membership, and a workshop instructor. In this webinar, you will learn about Stata's sem and gsem commands. Let’s say that you have a dataset with a bunch of binary variables. Value 8.707 Degrees of Freedom 8 P-Value 0.3676. For comparison purposes we will compute a CFA on the original continuous data. Die Faktorenanalyse oder Faktoranalyse ist ein Verfahren der multivariaten Statistik. Exploratory Factor Analysis 3. We note that the model fit versus a saturated model has a chi-square of 2.19 with four degrees of freedom. If the model includes variables that are dichotomous or ordinal a factor analysis can be performed using a polychoric correlation matrix. endobj It is used to test whether measures of a construct are consistent with a researcher's understanding of the nature of that construct (or factor). I have a 240-item test, and, according to the initial model and other authors, I must obtain 24 factors. Once you get past the standard stuff that tells you that your model terminated successfully, the number of variables and factors, you see this: Chi-Square Test of Model Fit. Factor analysis: intro Factor analysis is used mostly for data reduction purposes: – To get a small set of variables (preferably uncorrelated) from a large set of variables (most of which are correlated to each other) – To create indexes with variables that measure similar things (conceptually). I will present a set of routines to conduct a one-factor confirmatory factor analysis in Stata. Brown PsyD With its emphasis on practical and conceptual aspects, rather than mathematics or formulas, this accessible book has established itself as the go-to resource on confirmatory factor analysis (CFA). n*I Scienoe 183 .

Latent constructs, such as liberalism or conservatism, are theoretical and cannot be measured directly. a 1nY n We proposed a model using exploratory factor analysis (EFA) to support dimensionality and interpretation of the factors. endobj Exploratory It is exploratory when you do not Introduction 2. variables than the correlations among the binary values. The method of choice for such testing is often confirmatory factor analysis (CFA). You want to do this first to verify the measurement quality of any and all latent constructs you’re using in your structural equation model. But we can use a set of questions on a scale, called indicators, to represent the construct together by combining them into a latent factor.Often prior research has determined which indicators represent the latent construct. Confirmatory factor analysis is just a particular type of SEM. Value 8.707 EFA is data driven, but CFA is theory driven. This article describes the confa command, which fits confirmatory factor analysis models by maximum likelihood and provides diagnostics for the fitted models. Confirmatory Factor Analysis CFA is part of a larger analysis framework, called … My model is composed of four latent domains (first order) and one overarching latent domain (second order). • Exploratory Factor Analysis (EFA) – EFA examines (1) how many factors a measure estimates and (2) what these factors are. What it is and How To Do It / Kim Jae-on, Charles W. Mueller, Sage publications, 1978. STATA will be introduced as a powerful tool to conduct confirmatory factor analysis. In addition, a five factor confirmatory factor analytic solution fit the data better than a four, three, or one factor solution. mean values. EFA, in contrast, does not specify a measurement model initially and usually seeks to discover the measurement model.

Let’s start with the confirmatory factor analysis I mentioned in my last post. – EFA is used when an old phenomenon is re-conceptualized or a new phenomenon emerges . Use Principal Components Analysis (PCA) to help decide ! Es dient dazu, aus empirischen Beobachtungen vieler verschiedener manifester Variablen (Observablen, Statistische Variablen) auf wenige zugrunde liegende latente Variablen (Faktoren) zu schließen. In the EFA we explore the factor structure (how the variables relate and group based on inter-variable correlations); in the CFA we confirm the factor structure we extracted in the EFA. 25 0 obj • Confirmatory Factor Analysis (CFA) (See the 1st image with the factor analysis "Factor Analysis_STATA"). Latent constructs, such as liberalism or conservatism, are theoretical and cannot be measured directly. This is a very good fit for an EFA and reflects the synthetic nature of the data. You will want to compute the CFA on tetrachoric correlations that reflect the associations among these underlying continuous variables. The tetrachoric correlations are much closer to the original correlations among the continuous REF: Podsakoff, P.M., MacKenzie, S.B., Lee, J.Y., and Podsakoff, N.P. As such, the objective of confirmatory factor analysis is to test whether the data fit a hypothesized measurement model. • Exploratory factor analysis: ﬁnd (simple) covariance structure in the data; a standard multivariate technique — see [MV] factor • Conﬁrmatory factor analysis: upon having formulated a theoretical model, see if it ﬁts the data; estimate the parameters and assess goodness of ﬁt.

Mueller, Sage publications, 1978. 127–156). When the observed variables are categorical, CFA is also referred to as item response theory (IRT) analysis (Fox, 2010; van der Linden, 2016). A second confirmatory factor analysis was conducted restricting each item to load only on its corresponding scale. Confirmatory factor analysis (CFA) is the fundamental first step in running most types of SEM models. factor analysis adds capabilities to move beyond the traditional approach—you may never want to rely on alpha and principal component factor analysis again for developing a scale. The Pearson correlations tend to underestimate the relationship Corrections for non-normality, as common in the structural equation modeling literature, will be demonstrated. You don’t want to compute your confirmatory factor analysis (CFA) directly on the binary variables. Corrections for non-normality, as common in the structural equation modeling literature, will be demonstrated.
