Hi everyone I am able to do my EFA with the fa() function:
EFA <-fa(efa.ef.data.complete.cases, nfactors=2,rotate="varimax",fm="minres")
According to the documentation, the argument fm specifies the extraction method, "minres" which is minimum residual. I cannot find what the argument for principal axis factoring is. The r documentation talks about principal axis factoring, but does not specify the what the argument for it is.
When I googled this question, and several guides led me to another function: factor.pa(), but the r documentation indicates it is "deprecated" I have also looked at the function factanal(), but this is only for maximum likelihood..
Does anyone know the argument abbreviation for principal axis factoring or another appropriate function?
