nFactors: Parallel Analysis and Other Non Graphical Solutions to the Cattell Scree Test

Indices, heuristics and strategies to help determine the number of factors/components to retain: 1. Acceleration factor (af with or without Parallel Analysis); 2. Optimal Coordinates (noc with or without Parallel Analysis); 3. Parallel analysis (components, factors and bootstrap); 4. lambda > mean(lambda) (Kaiser, CFA and related); 5. Cattell-Nelson-Gorsuch (CNG); 6. Zoski and Jurs multiple regression (b, t and p); 7. Zoski and Jurs standard error of the regression coeffcient (sescree); 8. Nelson R2; 9. Bartlett khi-2; 10. Anderson khi-2; 11. Lawley khi-2 and 12. Bentler-Yuan khi-2.
