Six Mental Tests


These data are from the SAS manual and consist of six mental tests for 32 students, with some missing data. The three x variables are intended to load on a verbal factor, and the three y variables on a math factor. The data can be used to illustrate the estimation of a confirmatory factor analysis model by multinormal full-information maximum-likelihood in the presence of missing data.




A data frame with 32 observations on the following 6 variables.


score on verbal test 1.


score on verbal test 2.


score on verbal test 3.


score on math test 1.


score on math test 2.
