Abstract

Compared 3 major orthogonal rotations (varimax, equimax, and quartimax) using the Receptive scale of the Luria Nebraska Neuropsychological Battery in this first in a series of articles focusing on applications of multivariate statistical techniques to neuropsychological research. Results of the computations show construct validity for the Receptive scale and the similarity of varimax and equimax rotations in their solutions. It is suggested that each of the rotated solutions offers advantages depending on the purpose of the factor analysis and the degree to which the method is consistent with the purpose. (19 ref)
