Data Reduction Projects
We can help you with your projects involving Data Reduction. The most common type of Data Reduction technique is Factor Analysis
Factor Analysis consists of analyzing the correlation structure of a group of variables. The objective is to assess whether a group or several subgroups of variables "cling" together.
Those subgroups will be our factors, that will typically will allow us to reduce the number required dimensions (which could be of great use when conducting regression analysis with a lot of variables with common correlation structures, for example).
Conducting a proper Factor Analysis requires good amount of expertise, as there are many subtleties to take into account in order to decide how many factors/components to extract, and how to interpret those component.
How factor analysis can help you?
Factor Analysis is one of many data reduction technique, with the objective of reducing the number of dimensions of individual items.
Factor analysis analyzes the covariance commonalities among a group of variables, and it helps you detect those variable "cling" together and sharing a relatively large common covariance.
Although the mechanical process of collecting data and using software to get an output is relatively simple, there are a lot of complexities understanding what options to give to the software, and you likely will need a statistics expert to help you with that.
How to do factor analysis step by step?
You need to follow a precise methodology. First, you need to base you work upon a solid research design, which will set up how you get your data collected.
You then need to make sure the data collected meets the statistical assumptions required for Factor Analysis. Also, at this point and from your research design you will know whether you are conducting an Exploratory Factor Analysis (EFA), or you are conducting a Confirmatory Factor Analysis (CFA).
A statistics expert can help you sort out all the difficulties you will find when conducting data reduction.
What is the primary goal of factor analysis?
The primary goal of factor analysis is to reduce the dimensionality of a sample of many variables. The idea is group variables together that cling to different latent factors.
The benefit of that is conceptually being able to see the full spectrum reduced to small number of factors, that summarize as accurately as possible the full spectrum.
Lot of of things can go wrong in a data reduction project, so it is a safe bet to secure the help of a statistics expert.
