Subject: Factor Error Message
Content-Type: text/plain; charset=us-ascii
This is a statistics question: hope it's OK for this list. I am still
using SPSSPC v 3.0 but hope to move up to the Windows version this year.
I got a warning message while running FACTOR which I'd never seen
before: the correlation matrix is ill-conditioned for factor
processing. Using the same variable list, I did not get this message
when running FACTOR with no switches, but did get it when I tried to
save the factor scores. I can't see anything wrong with the correlation
matrix and the test for sphericity came out OK.
Thanks in advance for any help.
