SCREE_PLOT {EFA.dimensions}R Documentation

Scree plot of eigenvalues

Description

Produces a scree plot of eigenvalues for raw data or for a correlation matrix.

Usage

SCREE_PLOT(data, corkind, Ncases, verbose)

Arguments

data

An all-numeric dataframe where the rows are cases & the columns are the variables, or a correlation matrix with ones on the diagonal.The function internally determines whether the data are a correlation matrix.

corkind

The kind of correlation matrix to be used if data is not a correlation matrix. The options are 'pearson', 'kendall', 'spearman', 'gamma', and 'polychoric'. Required only if the entered data is not a correlation matrix.

Ncases

The number of cases for a correlation matrix. Required only if the entered data is a correlation matrix.

verbose

Should detailed results be displayed in console? TRUE (default) or FALSE

Value

totvarexpl

The eigenvalues and total variance explained
