Sample text

For example, we may wish to determine whether the correlations between six items thought to measure either depression or anxiety are best represented by one general factor or by two factors that can either be related or unrelated. In the one-factor model all six items would load on a single factor, whereas in the two-factor model the depression items would load on only one of the factors while the anxiety factors would only load on the other factor. The two factors can be allowed to be related or unrelated to one another.
