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

Hi Meng Hu.

Thank you for reviewing my paper.

Quote: I thought he could be right. EFA as well as CFA should be used, as they are complementary. But you note that Revelle seems to disagree (this practice was apparently used to find a general factor of personality, by Rushton & Irwing, and others) and prefer the use of the hierarchical "Omega" which is the method you use in your section 12, to evaluate the strength of g. Honestly, the paper "The general factor of personality: A general critique." (Revelle & Wilt 2013) you linked was not easy to read. The authors do not specify clearly the advantage of Omega, unless it's just me.

As I wrote before, it is an exploratory study. I didn't have a ready made model or alternative model to use CFA on to begin with.

Well, as you can see in the RW paper, they use many different methods. I used all the same methods, except the cluster one which I don't know how they used.

It is a hard paper yes, their methods aren't quite clear, which is why I wasn't more clear. I am simply following their lead and showing that their methods too confirm the strength of the general factor.

Quote: From Revelle & Wilt (2013) table 1, it is said that the sets S1 and S5 have a pattern consistent with the existence of g, but not the sets S4 and S8. For S4 and S8, this conclusion is explicited by the fact that a portion of the correlations are just zero while some others are strong. Do you agree with this interpretation of g/no g ?

Yes.

Quote: Shouldn't it be Λg/N instead ? (see Revelle & Wilt 2013 p 496)

The parentheses shows the eigenvalue and variable numbers from which the value was calculated. It is somewhat unclear, but how else to write it? It is common to put e.g. SD's in parentheses too.

Quote: You don't need to put a comma after "stronger than".

It seems right to me. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Subordinate...unctuation

Quote: P.S. there is a problem with reference 23. The length of the link goes out of bound. I think you already know it, but is there is no possibility to correct for this ?

I see. However, I don't think I can fix it. It is a bug in bibtex apparently. However, I note that if you click the link, it works fine. It is only visually broken thus only a minor problem.

I will add a new version shortly with some more stuff in the discussion.
