loadings |

Display factor loadings tables or graphs.

Syntax

factor_name.loadings(options)

factor_name.loadings(graph, options) [graph_list]

where the [graph_list] is an optional list of integers and/or vectors containing integers identifying the factors to plot. If graph_list is not provided, EViews will construct graphs using all of the retained factors.

Multiple pairs are handled using the method specified in the “mult=” option. Note that the order of elements in the list matters; reversing the order of two indices reverses the axis on which each factor is displayed.

Options

graph | Display graphs of the loadings (default is to display the loadings in a spreadsheet view). |

unrotated | Use the unrotated loadings (default is to use the rotated loadings, if available). |

prompt | Force the dialog to appear from within a program (for loadings graphs only) |

p | Print results. |

Graph Options

mult =arg (default=“first”) | Multiple series handling: plot first against remainder (“first”), plot as x-y pairs (“pair”), lower-triangular plot (“lt”). |

nocenter | Do not center graphs around the origin. By default, EViews centers biplots around (0, 0). |

Examples

f1.loadings

displays the spreadsheet view of the (possibly rotated) loadings.

f1.loadings(graph, unrotated) 1 2

displays an XY graph of the first two unrotated factor loadings.
