Factor rotation, Advanced Statistics

Generally the final stage of an exploratory factor analysis in which factors derived initially are transformed to build their interpretation simpler. Generally the target of the process is to make the common factors more clearly defined by increasing the size of huge factor loadings and decreasing the size of those which are small. Bipolar factors are generally divided into two different parts, one corresponding to those variables with the positive loadings and another to those variables with negative loadings. Rotated factors can be forced to be orthogonal but might also be permitted to be correlated or oblique if this helps in simplifying the resulting solution.
