NO CONVERGENCE. NUMBER OF ITERATIONS EXCEEDED. PROBLEM OCCURRED IN EXPLORATORY FACTOR ANALYSIS WITH 10 FACTOR(S).
The User Guide specifies that for this type of convergence problem, I should check to make sure there are no large negative variances / residual variances in the prelim parameter estimates.
So for each section of the output (EFA with 2 factors, EFA with 3 factors, etc etc) I have looked at the "estimated residual variances". I don't know what "large" would be. Can you help me understand? Is a residual variance of 0.5 large? 0.6? 0.9?
NO CONVERGENCE IN ROTATION ALGORITHM. NUMBER OF ITERATIONS EXCEEDED. PROBLEM OCCURRED IN EXPLORATORY FACTOR ANALYSIS WITH 2 FACTOR(S). THE PROBLEM IS PROBABLY DUE TO THE NEGATIVE RESIDUAL VARIANCE FOR VARIABLE F6.
However, when I switch to estimator = bayes,it is performed. Is this correct?
