Subject: Re: What communalities and matrice to report ?
Also report the final communalities although they are different depending on whether you consider the correlation among factors or not. I usually reproduce the communalities associated with the pattern matrix but there is some disagreement as to whether the pattern or structure matrices are best. Be prepared to report both.

Subject: What communalities and matrice to report ?
Hi dear all,
1. I am using factor analysis (ML extraction). I would like to know what communality to report : initial or extraction ?
2. I used a Promax rotation. I would like to know what matrice to report : pattern matrix or structure matrix ?
Thanks in advance for your help. I would appreciate if you can provide some references.
