Abstract

This paper thematise the problem of seeking and devising a simple structure, when the solution envisages the extraction of more than one component or factor. To this avail, we shall make a comparison between a number of rotation techniques, both orthogonal and oblique, to evaluate just how capable they are of delivering the highest possible semplification of the data yielded by the analysis. To evaluate the results obtained through empirical controls, we have drawn up a simple structure index. For reasons of space, we shall apply principal components analysis to our method, although the results obtained here also hold for factor analysis.
