Subject: Data requirements for Factor analysis
Content-Type: text/plain; charset=ISO-8859-1; format=flowed
I have a data set which contain data in different scale. Most question scale
is 1-5 likert scale. We also have other scale for some questions. For
example, we have category question, like location of work. Another example
is we have question to distribute 100% of time to different locations. My
question is: what's creteria to do explorative factor analysis? Can I do
exporative factor analysis with all of the data i got?
Could you guys please give me some advice and/or reference on this topic?
Thank you very much.
