We might expect large block groups tending to have large values for all four variables, and small block groups tending to have small values for all four variables. The analyst should seek out support in the research or business literature for the conceptual definition of the composite. The evidence for the existence and relevance of the user-defined composite should be clear and convincing. For example, for composite W, the analyst may cite the study from the National Academy of Sciences by Hope et al.

The variables were standardized and the Z -vectors found, Z i = (X i − µi ) /σii . 7. Note that the correlations, although statistically significant in several cases, are overall much weaker than the correlations from the houses data set above. A weaker correlation structure should pose more of a challenge for the dimension reduction method. 01 level (two-tailed). 05 level (two-tailed). To function appropriately, factor analysis requires a certain level of correlation. Tests have been developed to ascertain whether there exists sufficiently high correlation to perform factor analysis.

3. The prediction error and squared prediction error may then be calculated. The sum of the squared prediction errors, or the sum of squares error, SSE = (y − yˆ )2 , represents an overall measure of the error in prediction resulting from the use of the estimated regression equation. Here we have SSE = 12. Is this value large? We are unable to state whether this value SSE = 12 is large, since at this point we have no other measure to which to compare it. Now imagine for a moment that we were interested in estimating the distance traveled without knowledge of the number of hours.
