Factor analysis: Factor scores

The factor scores are computed in two steps.
At first the factor score coefficients are computed by
MSN.M is the matrix of means and stddevs obtained by CORR.
This gives the matrix of coefficients FCOEFF.M .

If an oblique rotation has been used, the loadings for the factor
scores are computed by

Finally, factor scores are obtained by
LINCO <data>,FCOEFF.M(F1,F2,...)
where <data> is the original (or corresponding) Survo data (file)
and F1,F2 are (possibly new) variables for factor scores.
Thereafter, the factor scores can be analyzed like any other data
in Survo.
