Hello There, Guest!  

[ODP] The international general socioeconomic factor: Factor analyzing international

#32
I will update the paper with many changes based on your last substantive review. No worries. I will include a section on the number of factors to use, and their interpretability.

I also ran a oblimin rotation. With nfactors=5, all factors extracted correlate with each other in the right direction (note ML2 is reversed). This indicates a general, higher-order factor, yes?

Code:
