Factor scores, Advanced Statistics

The values assigned to factors for the individual sample units in a factor analysis. The most common approach is "regression method". When the factors are seen as the random variables this corresponds to the best linear unbiased predictor and if the factors are supposed to have normal distributions to the empirical Bayes prediction. The Bartlett technique is also sometimes used which corresponds to the max imum likelihood estimation of factor scores if the factors are seen as ?xed.
