Eight political variables used by Harman (1967) as example 8.17


Another one of the many Harman (1967) data sets. This contains 8 political variables taken over 147 election areas. The principal factor method with SMCs as communalities match those of table 8.18. The data are used by Dziubian and Shirkey as an example of the Kaiser-Meyer-Olkin test of factor adequacy.




The format is: num [1:8, 1:8] 1 0.84 0.62 -0.53 0.03 0.57 -0.33 -0.63 0.84 1 ... - attr(*, "dimnames")=List of 2 ..$ : chr [1:8] "Lewis" "Roosevelt" "Party Voting" "Median Rental" ... ..$ : chr [1:8] "Lewis" "Roosevelt" "Party Voting" "Median Rental" ...


The communalities from the original table are not included. They are .52, 1.00, .78, .82, .36, .80, .63, and .97
