István Ottó: Hierarchical factor analysis by the SPSS sofware package

This paper introduces a version of factor analysis scarcely mentioned in the Hungarian litera-ture so far, despite its growing international popularity. The method in question is Schmid and Leiman’s (1957) hierarchical factor analysis, which is suitable for the production of a multi-layered factor structure from the correlations of rotated factors. First the mathematical bases of the method are presented, then the use of the method itself within the SPSS statisti-cal program package is demonstrated through a practical example.
