Hi,

I have run a confirmatory factor analysis of 12 items into three correlated factors. I was curious whether a higher-order factor with these three factors would represent a better solution, but results were just the same!

How could I then argue for a higher order strucuture as representing a better solution?

Thank you,

The models are not statistically distinguishable so you can't argue using statistics. Theory would be your only guide.
