I understand, but my problem is with your wording, because it sounds like if G is not causal, aggregation will not increase correlation with G. That's the entire sentence that should be remade.

Ok with the last sentence, but i wanted to say it because even though at individual level, wealth variable may have moderate causal effect, things can be different at national level where you have more environmental variations, and so you can (should) expect higher effect of environmental factors.

Concerning congruence coefficient, after reading this article...

Davenport, E. C. (1990). Significance testing of congruence coefficients: A good idea?. Educational and psychological measurement, 50(2), 289-296.

... I am left with the impression it's very bad method. You should be careful with that. (The version of the paper I have can't allow copy paste, but check the pages 293-295.) The congruence coeff seems to constantly give you very high value even in situations where they should be (theoretically) small, or not high at all.

Regarding the question of negative loadings, i don't understand your discussion here, both of you. My opinion is that when you have small loadings (such as 0.20 or less) in the 1rst unrotated factor, regardless of the direction, you should remove it because it's a poor measure of this factor.

The same can be said about rotated factor analysis. For instance, you have 3 interpretable factors, and you have a 4th one, not interpretable at all. And one of your variable has meaningful loading only on the 4th but not the others. In that case, remove it and re-do the factor analysis, etc. etc... until you get something neat.

Concerning if having only one variable with no loading on the 1st non-rotated factor is a problem and should be removed (i.e., keeping only variable having large or (at least) modest loadings), I would appreciate if someone here can find me some articles that talk about that subject, because I don't remember if I have.

Each time I post here, I get the following:

Quote:Please correct the following errors before continuing:
The subject is too long. Please enter a subject shorter than 85 characters (currently 88).

Can you try to fix that ?
